Going in for foot surgery 5 Oct...
...so you'll probably see a lot more of me for the next month or so.

UPDATE: Back home now, on Percocet and feeling no pain. I actually had no cartilage left in the big toe, so they had to fuse it

Cheilectomy (removing extra bone), possible arthrodesis (fusing the joint) for hallux rigidus (stiff big toe).

I wouldnt do it.

If they put a pin in you'll have a permanent limp. Saw it happen to several on their way out of the USN.

Stiff joints has a couple of causes that are reversible without surgery. But i guess you're set to go.

You'll be fixed up and as good as new in no time. Don't worry about a thing. You're in the hands of professionals.

What a great time to be off your feet and in front of the tv...right before a Presidential election lol If THAT doesn't make your foot heal faster (so you don't have to watch the Presidential election news 24/7), I don't know what will. :)

No, mine's BAD! I saw the X-rays, and those were taken before deployment. The first joint of my big toe looks like a flange, and the ends of each bone are curled back like scrollwork. Even if I do end up with a limp, I'll adjust. I've heard of people running marathons with a fused toe.

just from waist down they made the anesthesia. but it's true you are up much earlier, and you don't have to face 6-9 hours of not being able to move your feet.

With my hubby, they took out the first joint, shortening the toe, so it looks funny, but after a time he managed to go back to playing racquetball.

Of course, he could use the toe operation as an excuse why he couldn't play as well as before. But he rarely used it... only if he was losing badly. LOL!bump

lol I haven't seen it without bandages yet, so I don't know if he shortened it. All I know is that they fused it with two screws.
