... Good to hear, thanks. I'm only having one toe done and will supposedly only wear a Darco boot afterward. Supposedly I can put weight on it right away though I know there will be limitations the first few weeks. I was told I can drive as soon as I'm off the pain meds, and can ride a bicycle after a couple weeks and an indoor bike even sooner.

... My head is spinning.
In my research on the topic of Hallux Rigidus, I've come across many different types of metatarsal osteotomies.
Phalangeal (Moberg), decompression (Weil), periaticular, and many more.
Do any of you understand the difference between them? If you do, might you be able to explain them to me?
I thank you. My head thanks you. (1 replies)
