i have had very painful feet now for over 6 months the top of my foot is swollen and very painful the swelling is hard and OK whilst I'm sitting but when I stand the pain is bad and I'm walking along crippled then if I keep walking it wears off coming back intermittently.
i saw a consultant who says I need both feet operating on and metal plates inserted where the swelling is after he's sorted out the bones
well I'm terrified of being off my feet for any length of time as he says no weight bearing for 3 months then 3 months to start walking again and 12 months till recovered then the other foot will be sorted
has anyone had a similar experiance?would you advise surgery?are there any alternatives?Im 68 and frightened to death this will be the end of me
what if it's still painful or worse?
what if I never walk properly again?
i would greatly appreciate any input
