I was diagnosed with freibergs September 2009 after suffering pain since i was 16 am now 38!! My doctor had misdiagnosed me all them years ago saying there was nothing wrong and yet 2 years later diagnosed 'Rheumatoid Arthritis'?? how she came to that conclusion is beyond me as she never sent me for a single x-ray. Anyway moved out of area last year so changed my G.P and she referred me to a specialist straight away who diagnosed Freibergs and said because it had been untreated and neglected for 22 years my foot was shot to pieces but that he would try his very best. i had surgery march 2010 2 procedures (debridement & stainsby procedure) basically my second metatarsal had fused to my 1st and collapsed so he had to split the bone in half and reposition my tendon between the bones and basically tie it up inside with wire then he inserted a metatarsal bar through the top of my 2nd toe right through my foot to hold my foot together, bar was taken out 4 weeks later, it's been 6 months since my op am due to see my surgeon beginning november but i know the outcome already, more surgery! ;-( i am in so much pain with my foot it is actually worse than before but he has said that i may face many many surgical procedures and that he will try his best for me but that if any op is successful i can only hope to stay the same it wil never be any better it is such a shock to know that am gonna be in this much pain indeffinately ;-( it is disabling i can no longer drive, can't walk far anymore, it has caused me problems to my spine now. there is not enough information out there for sufferers i wish there was somewhere i could get help and information.
