Re: PTTD Arizona Brace, Richie Brace or surgery
Wow, what a hot mess! I think what you need to do is get a second opinion and fast. My surgeon took one look at my foot and said surgery. I fought him on it, but only for a few weeks. I can't believe you've gone through so much and your doctor has never mentioned surgery. Why? It seems to me that your best interests are not his priority. Find an orthopedic surgeon who knows your condition and can make a professional diagnosis. What tests has your doctor done? MRI? X-rays? Anything that would indicate surgery as your best option?
Now, to answer your question - It is possible to have the surgery and be back at work after a few weeks, but it would be tough.
I really hope you can get a solution to your foot problems - and soon!
Keep us posted, I'd very much like to know what happens.
