Re: MTPJ Cartilage Operation
Yay, so nice to get a response and some feedback. My graft is to the cartilage in the ball of the foot. They plan to get me doing physio and walking a bit after 6 weeks. It is not as weightbearing as the ankle I imagin, but it is a high friction area with the movement of walking. I did not know that they harvest from cadavers and I am pleased to say they harvested from my joints in the same area. My surgeon did mention that we would only know the full outcome after 1 year. I got into this predicament by not listening to my body and running through pain so I will definitely be listening now, resting and healing.
