I found out I have arthritis in one foot, and went to the surgeon I had been seeing for treatment. The initial treatment was foot manipulation and injections. The injections last a mere three weeks of comfort and so after my trip to the states I went to him for a follow-up. He examined my foot again by pressing on certain areas to see if they hurt which they did.
He did not recommend an operation which fuses the joints together, commenting that with so many bones, liagments, nerves, etc., it might not be wise.
So now I'm reduced to going to pain management and physio therapy treatments. Does anyone else have this problem, and if so, how to keep arthritis at bay and not get worse.
I imagined I might have this painful ailment at 80 not 60. I'm told walking is beneficial since it circulates the joints, but who wants to cripple walk?
This has made a major dent in my whole lifestyle because I used to walk for miles in enjoyment.
