... I had bone fusion of my right great toe 7 weeks ago and I'm still in a lot of pain. The doctor says everything looks great and alignment is correct. Wondering if anyone else has pain this long after surgery. ... (85 replies)

... He was going out of town until today. Hope to hear tomorrow. If I don't, I will be calling him. He didn't mention a bone stimulator, but thanks for the heads up on insurance maybe not paying for it. I will sure check on that if a bone stimulator is an option in my case. ... (85 replies)

... Hi, I went to the doctor Tuesday. Asked him again if the pin comes out and he said no, that it is embedded in the bone and no need to come out. It took a guiding wire to ensure proper placement. ... (85 replies)
... Forgot to mention that there was a complication during the pin placement with the bone fusion. The guiding wire broke and they would have left it in there and used a different one but it popped up through the bone. ... (85 replies)
... dbgoalie, I wonder about the hardware rejection issue, too. My history is not nearly as long as yours. My toe has been hurting off and on for about 2 years. The joint at the start of the year was pretty inflamed and swollen when I went in for my yearly checkup in March. ... (85 replies)
... Lynide, give me a little history of what you had done please. This is operation number three for me. ... (85 replies)

... removal of the plates and screws a year after surgery. As far as I'm concerned the bone fusion surgery is a failure. I am in more pain now than I was to start with and would go back to the joint implant in a heart beat. ... (85 replies)

Fusion of Big Toe
Apr 16, 2009
... You asked if the graft was in place of screws. Yes and a plate. The reason for the graft is that i had surgery on this foot 2 years ago that left my toe shorter than it was, that was a bad deal and i was never pain free. ... (162 replies)
... seemed to be healing, I hope. You have to be absolutely crazed with the amount of time and pain, that seems to be for nothing. hopefully whatever is next willl get this all behind you. ... (85 replies)
... Kelly, I'm going to seek a second opinion. I failed to ask my POD if he had done many of these procedures. I probably should have asked how many, and how's your success rate? ... (85 replies)
... respected in the community, and quite frankly it was an Ortho who started it all back in the 90's. I had double bunionectomy by an ortho and she shaved too much bone off which led to the problems I'm having now. I knew within two weeks she'd screwed up when I tried to walk and stumbled to the left. ... (85 replies)
... because of my history with the pod, i'm pretty convinced they have no business messing with bones. they should be set aside for the lesser invasive procedures. ... (85 replies)
... Kelly can give you more details since she's had the fusion done and seems to be doing fine. I was scheduled to have it done in December but backed out because of fear of failure. My original 1st met fusion was done without hip graft and the fusion failed. ... (85 replies)
... ds or not, i'm getting so syced up it's rediculous. i guess one can't have too much info. you're right about getting used to using one leg and practicing ahead of time. i thought the toilet would be a good place to start. it's tougher than it seems to get up using only one leg! ... (85 replies)
... That puts me back in the boot for 2 weeks or more. The second toe has nerve damage and sometimes brings me out of my chair from the pain. My POD is going to inject it 3 times over the next 6 weeks with a special alcohol solution that will render the toe numb. ... (85 replies)
... Someone please give me some positive feedback on 1st met fusion with a graft from the hip procedure. My ortho surgeon said he does some special gel packing in the hip to alleviate pain. ... (85 replies)
