I will have to report back on how this surgery has worked when the results come in! They took out the big joint in the toe near the bunion area and fused the two bones together. I shouldn't notice much change, except there should be no pain in my foot once it has healed. I had little movement of the joint since there was bone on bone anyways. This way it is just hitched together as one! I won't be able to wear heals, but I hadn't been able to anyways!
If any of you have had this done, I will be interested in hearing how long it took you to heal!
