Hello! My father is 74 years old and very alert and active. He had quadruple bypass surgery in 1981 during which a vein was removed from his right leg to complete the bypass. Ever since that time, he has had pain in his foot, but ONLY between the "big"toe and the second toe - that area between those two toes. Rubbing it relieves the pain, but only for a short time. It hurts more when he is sitting as opposed to walking. He was hospitalized 2 months ago for a third mild heart attack. A catheter procedure was performed and it was determined that 2 of the bypasses were completely blocked, so two stents were inserted via catheter to open up the arteries, quite successfully. If any doctor or anyone can help, it would be GREATLY appreciated and he would be eternelly grateful. Thanks!
