So my second opinion ortho surgeon told me today that he would do a salvage MTP fusion on my failed implant in my right foot, and in doing so would require a bone graft from my hip.


Who's had this hip bone graft for their toe joint? Any complications? What is recovery like?

I'd also love to hear from anyone who chose NOT do a bone graft and proceeded with the fusion anyway, and the shorter toe that will result from not bone grafting/filling in. How bad is the shorter stubby big toe looking? Is it still functional? How do shoes fit?

Thanks in advance for the replies!!
