Just really bummed right now... I had foot surgery 9 years ago and another for the same foot a year later. They had to take a bone out and give me one from a bone bank and put a screw in to fuse it. I have been having a lot of trouble with it for about 5 years and kept putting it off because I figured it meant another surgery. Well I finally went to a orthopedic specialist the other day and was not expecting what he told me at all. He said I got osteoarthritis eats away the cartilage between the bones and all mine is gone between my fused bone and the other one. He said the only option is another fusing which I will have less movement than what I do now. (cant move it from side to side now)I am on inflammation pills and had to take steriods for a week. Trying to avoid surgery as long as possible. I stand at work for 8 hours everyday which doesnt help much. Anyone else have osteoarthritis? If so please share your story with me.
