And I thought the worst was over!!

Went to see my surgeon yesterday, expecting him to confirm that he would be performing a subtalar fusion on my L foot. Had triple arthrodesis R foot in Oct. 2010, debridement surgery in May 2011 and in Sept. 2011 I had Big toe part fusion and Jones tendon transfer and small toe k-wired. So, the next one was gonna be easy, so I thought!! It appears that my left foot is a lot worse than my R one ever was. One of the joints is almost completely gone due to arthritis, so it's another triple fusion, big toe fusion, Jones tendon transfer and small toe tendon release! Then, when thats sorted he has to do a small toe tendon release on my right foot. Here we go again!!!! I've had my pre op and will probably be getting it done by end of April.

Re: And I thought the worst was over!!

Sorry to hear this. April is probably a good time to get it done. Would be hard to get around in the winter in a cast. Hopefully you will be healed up in time to enjoy some of the summer.

Oh cloud, so sorry to hear this. Sounds like maybe your foot got worse while compensating for the other all this time?

Your 2011 sounds like mine, just had my 4th surgery of this year on Monday...things have got to get better, right?

Try to enjoy your holidays and not think about this even if just for a few days.

Please keep us posted!
Kim

You know that eating eggs would have helped you to avoid this!

Re: And I thought the worst was over!!

Cloud: I am so sorry to hear of this. Hopefully, after these two surgeries, you will be all done! I am right behind you - still recovering from my second surgery and will have to have flat foot reconstruction on my right foot during the next year!
