Fusion of Big Toe
Oct 30, 2009
... I'm going in next Friday to have a nerve removed from the 2nd toe. My big toe did not fuse properly but I'm having more pain with the nerve in the 2nd toe than the big toe.

... correct height...short, shape and sudden like......believe me, you wont have to guess when your heels are too high.

... My big toe was also shortened during my second surgery. You would think the doctor would give a warning that it was going to cause problems later.

... Bless your heart. I laughingly described my second toe as lazy and hitching a ride on top of the big toe. I had a pair of wedgie sneakers that are about the same height as the boot. I strongly suggest that you try to find something similar. ... (85 replies)
