SURGERY FOR HALLUX VALGUS and HALLUX LIMITUS
The Hallux Valgus is mild. The Hallux Limitus is mild (not much arthritis). My second toe is shorter than my first. The pain and swelling is mostly IN BETWEEN the BIG TOE AND THE SECOND TOE. The joint itself doesn't hurt that much, yet I am having surgery to correct the hallux valgus because the sesamoid bone is slightly moved into the first webspace (between the big toe and the second toe).
Does this make sense? Did you have this surgery and if so did it help pain in the first webspace? When I wear thick soled sandals a snap happens in the first webspace (maybe impinging nerve), but it's NOT like an electric shock. The second toe is lifting up.
I'm about to have bunion removed on side of big toe removed with internal fixation using orthopro implant.
I can walk a little bit okay without much pain, but can't even do household chores, barely run errands, normal every day activities become so painful and throbbing that I end up limping and having to sit down because I can't walk on it.
I'm only in my 30's and was bummed when I had to stop running because of a knee problem and now would be grateful just to walk again for more than a few minutes.
Have you had this surgery? Has it helped? Could it be something else? (Side note: I have a lot of other pain: electric shocks in the webspaces of the foot, cramping of the foot, back pain from tailbone and scoliosis).
