Hello again, some further info after my appt with my surgeon this afternoon.
He sent me for another x-ray which showed some deterioration in the big joint which wasn't present 12 weeks ago and a possible problem with two sigmoid bones (I think)
Confirmed the joint is very stiff, that can happen but said I was unique!
Treatment for now will be a steroid inj into the joint. The local will confirm that this takes the pain from the joint, huh!, and the steroid might make it last with a view to fusing the joint.
I could cry, it's time consuming, frustrating and preventing me from looking for another job. I can't start not knowing when I will need the time off. He did say he would put me down as "urgent" as there is a waiting list for the steroid procedure which has to be done with x-ray support in theatre.
Have had steroid inj in both feet before for my plantar fasciitis and tarsal tunnel so they do not worry me it's just that this is going on and on.
Hope someone has good news to share...........thank you all.
