I had foot surgery April 2016. Bunions removed from big toe and little toe - also had bone chips taken out of arthritic big toe joint; bones in foot shortened and pinned to relieve pressure on big and little toes. In November 2016, had a cortisone shot in big toe joint (toe felt "stiff" as though it was swollen and had difficulty moving it and it was painful). That shot relieved my pain - I walked without pain for the first time in years! But since August, the stiffness has returned and so today I had another shot. Doc says the joint will continue to become uncomfortable because of the arthritis and maybe I should consider a joint replacement some time in the future.

Anyone had such a procedure done? If so, what was the outcome?
