In Reply to: Fusion of Arthritic Big Toe Joint posted by Mary on January 16, 2000 at 16:28:18:

: I have severe osteoarthritis of the big toe joints by the balls of my feet. My podiatrist recommends fusion of the joint. I would like to hear from anyone who's had this done, as to how restricted I will be, does it relieve the pain, does it last forever? I am 60, very active (golf, tennis, ski, run), and want to remain active.....thanks, Mary

I have to decide whether to have my big toe joints fused for severe pain?arthritus.Can anyone tell me what happens immediately after surgey.Do they put apin in it?Could I work as a nurse involving hours of standing and walking?Jennifer
