Are you ready for this one????? (toe fusion)

My story started 20 yrs ago with a bunion...... I was a teen and had it removed. My toe pain continued and now i have had 1 operation to try to correct that which was unsuccsessful and then in March 2007 a toe fusion. Due to the fact that my toe was so short I had bone (from me) put in mid foot. 2 cm plate and 8 screws, 12 weeks NWB , aircast 5 more weeks and still in pain the doc decided to remove my hardware, Aug 2007. I figured a quick operation hmmmm i will stay awake. So they gave me a foot block and every now and then some meds to make me sleepy.

WELL ....It seemed a bit longer that 20 min (like he said) so I asked and the doc told me we seem to have a complication, 2 hours later and a 6cm long and 3 mm wide metal plate and 5 screws later I was in recovery. My mid foot never healed so they put in artificial bone. Although they xrayed every 3 weeks he never saw it. I am happy to say this time it has healed!! BUT NEW PROBLEM

I had a ct scan taken last friday because i could hardly walk. I have a 2.5 cm cyst in the top of the big toe bone and a screw that goes through it, AND i have developed an inactive ostriosorosis.... Monday I will see my foot doc.

I think that it is the kind of story that we all dread.
Since my bunion surgeries, I am just waiting for something else to happen.
I really don't trust anyone or anything.
Life and luck that is what I always say...............................
