Toe implants

Posted , 4 users are following.

Does anybody here have an ongoing problem after having toe implants? I had a bunionectomy and then nextra toe implants in the 2nd and 3rd toes nearly two years ago. The big toe is ok though a bit stiff (to be expected I suppose) and the 2nd toe has been fine. However the nextra toe implant in the 3rd toe often feels not painful but a bit uncomfortable. I find this particularly occurs in the mornings when in bed or throughout the day when wearing shoes. Has anyone had this kind of experience? John

    implanted with what?

    I had a 2 nd toe dislocation sorted. they fused th first joint and repaired dislocation.

    Nerve damage in the 3rd and fourth toe is very uncomfortable without shoes. They feel like they are stuck together.

    Where are you, names of procedures vary.

    just googled it. they didn't put implant into my 2nd toe. basically they cut the joint off each end of their bones and fused the two parts together like you would a broken bone. pin went through the two bones and it was removed when it healed. result a toe that no longer bends in the middle just where it joins the foot. and then very badly.

    whatever else was done has seriously screwed with the rest of the toes.

    trouble with NHS it's such a lottery. had much more complex surgery done to left foot by an orthopedic surgeon and its like a new foot. He's now got to sort out right foot that's been butchered.

      I paid for mine and it is like you say a lottery. At least your left foot is ok. When you have foot surgery it seems to me that it is never totally right afterwards

    I had breast cancer. lumpectomy and lymph nodes removed . Part of the healing was what we called the ball of socks stage. It felt like you had a ball of socks under the arm. We all walked round with a hand tucked into Jean pocket to relive discomfort. my toes feel the same. Hence I'm assuming it's nerve damage. It's like having a pebble in my toes.

    The armpit is now fine12 years clear. So keeping fingers crossed for toes.
