Fused joint in big toe

greenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

Dear Sirs,

I had a 1/2 inch removed from the end of my big toe because there is severely limited flexibility. I still experience a great deal of pain and have started walking on the outside of my foot to avoid the pain. Can I have joint replacement surgery after having the joint fused? Can you suggest any way to relieve the pain? I use a orthotic heel device. Your quick response would be greatly appreciated. Catherine Silveira
