    Arthritis / Bilateral Metatarsal Joint Fusion/LegDiscomfort

    Some time ago I developed arthritis in the large toe joints bilateraly. As a result of this, because of the pain, I began to alter my gait, walking on the outsoles of my feet. This in turn caused pain and discomfort in my legs. I had joint fusion on both joints which did relieve the pain. However I can not seem to resolve the pain and altered gait in my leg . I've tried my podiatrist, he prescribed orthotics which did not help. I've also tried physical therapy but to no avail. My podiatrist suggested surgery to extend my achilles tendon. Has anyone had similar problems? If so, were they corrected and how was this accomplished?
