| | Problem with Hallux Cheilectomy op
On the 1st of April (ha ha!) I had a Right Big Toe Hallux Cheilectomy to correct Hallux Rigidus Grade 11/111.Before the op I could walk just fine for miles, which amidst the beautiful rolling hills of Dumfries and Galloway, was a great passion of mine.I'm VERY sad to report that since the op it is now painful to take every step.I feel as if my surgeon has ruined my life! Brisk walking was the way I kept fit, especially important as I have lived for 46 years with Mycosis Fungoides(Cutaneous T-Cell lymphoma).If ONLY my surgeon(a supposed foot specialist!) had asked me how painful it was for me to walk, before the operation!! Is there anyone out there who has had a similar experience? I'd love to hear from you, as all I am now being offered is the fusing of my big toe to the foot.Result, no more pain, but a big limp. Cant say I'm thrilled at the prospect.
