I had my Consultant review today and, unbelievably, actually saw the Consultant! I was delighted to see him, if I'm honest, because he's a lovely, gently spoken man who appears to actually (or effectively manages to convey) care about how much discomfort I'm in. I've had a few very keen & eager Registrars & SHO's having a whirl at me as a longer term patient, but I've found them quite patronising & condescending. My horror was barely concealed when he suggested surgery on my feet (removal of some bone from toes to stop the clawing & alleviate pressure on the soles of my foot). Has anyone else had this procedure done? I'm not considering it, as an invasive procedure would be a final, desperation measure for me. I told him I'd rather put up with the pain.
