Hi all, just a rant. Skip to the next post if you don't want to hear me venting, lol!!

It's been a while since I posted. I had several procedures done last November, and most of my foot is better than it's been in 20 years!! That said, at my 9 month checkup my metatarsal osteotomy did not fuse and is not going to at this point, says my doc. Honestly I could live with it but the hardware is killing me. Wearing shoes rubs my skin are where the screw is sticking up, but that screw is holding my bone together!

Was the surgery worth it? Abso-freaking-lutely. Wish I hadn't waited so long to have it done. Boo to non fusing bones, though. For the record, I did use a bone stimulator for 3 months, it didn't do much. And no, I'm not a smoker :D
