  • Cartiva

    I am having the Cartiva implant done in about 3 weeks.   They make it sound like the recovery process is not bad, but reading some of the responses make it sound like it could be weeks before the pain goes away and you are able to get around.   I had resisted the fusion for the past...

I have been having steroid injections in my toe joint for the last 2 years (6 so far) and although I was told I could have up to 9, I was recently told that I should just go for surgery and have my toe joint fused - the podiatrist refused to inject anymore.

  • Big toe joint replacement

    Saw an orthopaedic consultant yesterday who confirmed, after an xray, that the osteoarthritis in the big toe joint is getting worse. He suggested two different types of surgery: a fusion of the bone or a replacement of the joint. I am leaning towards the latter although I don't know much about it...
