Surgeon now advises to have the big toe fused, as the joint is coming away from the bone. Operation booked for 8th augest. Saw the surgeon on monday as I was rather worried about having the fusion done.I am not in any discomfort just get a tingling sensation which I have always had,also the big toe has shortened due to the artificial joint coming loose. He realises my worries, and advised me ,that as I am worried to postphone the operation. He told me that the operation will at some stage need to be done. The joint could last like it is for 2 months or 2 years.
I cancelled the operation. Wondering if anyone else has the same problem was their artificial toe joint, now needing to be fused. I do know that these artificial joints do not last. 1st one was done in 2009 cant remember the date of its replacement
