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.

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!
