Arthritis

Posted by Linda on 6/06/03 at 15:29 (121185)

I have posted here many times. I have had pf surgery,as well as tarsal tunnel release,and heel spur excision.
I went to the foot doc the other day because my feet are worse now than before i had all the surgery over a year ago.
I had bloodwork done,and now the doctor is sending me to a rheumotologist. My red cell count was really low, and the test called Erythrocyte sedimentation rate was positive for inflammation. The Rheumotoid factor was negative, and i forget the other tests.
I was all set to have EWST done, until the doc suggested testing for arthritis first.
Has anyone experienced this after those surgeries? He suspects it because the pain is in both feet.
