Why are you looking for a second opinion? Are you unhappy with the treatment your doctor is providing? Is the fibular sesamoid painful, and what treatments have been attempted? I wouldn't tell any patient to not worry about a problem if it is symptomatic, but it's important to find out the answers to my questions to further assist you.
