... Thanks for the confirmation. I did send the doc an email, and he replied that this is normal for this early in the recovery. I'm scheduled for the second post-op appointment on the 25th if this month. He originally said he would remove the sutures at that time, but told me on Friday that he may decide to leave them in a bit longer. I sure do have quite a bit of pain... (21 replies)

... Sounds like all is well. Did you have the surgery in SF? And how are you doing now? I'm struggling with walking in a shoe now for about 4 weeks. I over did it this weekend and the foot is sore.

... anch. I drove down to see him as my sister lives in the area. I saw him this summer and have considered having him do my surgery and stay with my sister for the recovery period. A cheilectomy was originally recommend for me by an Ortho. Surgeon. However, Dr. ... (19 replies)
... Are you on any anti-inflammatories? Aleve, Celebex, Mobic, etc? How much cartilege did you have left and did they drill holes in it to promote regrowth? I assume you did exercises or PT after your surgeries? That is very important! I had lost about 1/2 of mine and after 4 years I really feel like it has regenerated some. The joint feels better. However, full recovery,... (19 replies)
... there's a risk of floppy toe. However, I am not dancing much at all anymore, so I'm OK with this. I do understand from all whom I spoke with, that if you do ONLY chilectomy you are just having a bandaid procedure... in my case the issue is structural, the first ray is too high. ... (12 replies)

Big toe fusion
Jun 26, 2012
... I had real concerns about having fusion. I had my first toe fused in February and the second toe done at the end of may. I am still in plaster and recovering. I have no pain at all, considering I couldn't tolerate bedcovers on my feet before the operations. Even in plaster, I am moving around better than before the operations. The first week post op is the worst, then things... (16 replies)

... Hi Mags, I have a very similar condition to you, apart from the chilectomy(?). There's a stress fracture on my big toe 1st metatarsal joint, and a grade 4 cartilage damage. And also the ligament in this joint is fully torn. But funny thing is I still can do normal sports, apart from it being rather painful ONLY after the game. So it doesnt keep me on the sidelines :D I... (1 replies)
... can see why you came to the decision you did. Of course, everyone is different, and it depends on the amount of cartiledge, but I think even back when I did the chilectomy I should have gone straight to the fusion, and frankly, my podiatrist should have recommended that. ... (10 replies)

... I didn't have any hardware put in. I had turf toe (hallux limitus/rigidus) from years of jogging and wearing high heels. You could see the bone chips form a cloud over the joint in my x-rays and see the bump on the top of the joint from it rubbing together. I walked out from the surgery center in a boot and continued to be able to walk. That was never a problem. Some... (5 replies)
