Hammer toes

Posted by maxw on 10/09/02 at 05:00 (097118)

Three years ago i had an operation on my feet to correct hammer toe. And since then i have been plagued by small infections on my toes. Around the joint areas. This has not been a problem to me untill thiss week when one of my toes swelled to twice/three times its normal size and became realy painful. It also had a lump on the top. Went to a doctor who sent me to casualty. where they suspected a absyis so they cut my toe open to release the pus. But there was none. The only thing they say it could of been is sceptic arthritus. Is this feasable or could it be something worse
