Sesamoid removal

Posted by Beckie D on 11/28/02 at 23:16 (101376)

I have been diagnosed with avascular necrosis in one sesamiod bone on my right foot. I am scheaduled for surgery to remove the bone. Can you tell me about the recovery period and what to expect? About how long to recover? Will I need to be casted ?

I also have a sesamoid question. I have had chronic inflammation and pain in the right sesamoid since bunion surgery in March 2001. If I had the bone removed what are the possible complications and negative implications. Mar
