Hallus Rigidus Surgery

I have just been told by my surgeon that I should have a fusion operation ( with insertion of a screw) on my big toe left foot to cure my very severe Hallus Rigidus

I play badminton and he has told me that I may not be able to play it again after the surgery.

Has anyone else had this surgery and been able to play badminton afterwards?

Re: Hallus Rigidus Surgery

Find another surgeon. People jog and wear heels after fusion. This is not the right guy to be going to.
