Hi. Just looking for anyone else that suffers from freibergs disease? I've recently been diagnosed with it, in my right, 3rd metatarsal head. Awaiting surgery. Just wanted to know some more information on the subject, Google isn't being that much of a help! Many thanks.

    Hi Sarah just been looking it up as I had never actually come across it before.

    This is obviously rare and it seems there are conflicting decisions on treatment, surgery or conservative, how long ago did you come down with symptoms and what have you been graded as because that can make a big difference to your options.

      Hiya! Erm, symptoms started around a year ago. The area of my foot is a little odd shape (it's a very odd shape lol) Was told by a Dr that is was "ligament damage" and to suck it up really. Wasn't until I went back to the Dr around 5 months ago that she sent me for xray. It was picked up immediately and I was referred to orthopaedics. Unfortunately, it's in the very last stage, and I'm awaiting surgery to have some bone removed from the matarsal head and the toes shortened if needs be. However waiting list for surgery is 6 months. I'm in a walking boot with crutches, but with 3 children you can imagine it's a bit of a pain. It is a very rare disease. First I had heard of it was when the Dr mentioned it to me. Not much information on it unfortunately, was hoping someone on here would have some information... X
