So i finally did it and im 5 months post fusion of the big toe! That went very very quickly! No pain in the joint anymore, but im getting lots of ankle pain and the very end of my big toe feels under pressure alot when walking. Anyone else had this?
The toe seems as if there is a small gap underneath it, im guessing thats the angle they fused it at. My amateur diagnosis is that im over pronating much further than i used to due to the gap. Im pretty sure over pronating was what set the arthritis off. This is then putting more stress on the ankle.
Going to go back to the surgeon for advice but just looking for opinions, or maybe others with similar complications. I need the other foot doing and right now i wouldnt go ahead with it as is.
Any advice most welcome!
