Cheilectomy updates

Posted by JohnV on 4/10/03 at 16:23 (115888)

I had a cheilectomy done on my right foot yesterday. So far, so good.

The pain is not that bad and I am able to walk somewhat okay with a cane. Unfortunately, I will probably be in this horrible surgical shoe for about two weeks.

I do not know right now how the joint will respond once I am able to wear normal shoes again. The bone spurs were removed and the doctor did say that range of motion was restored to the joint. Unfortunately, there was a great deal of cartilage loss and I don't know how that will play out down the road.

More updates to follow.
