Hi everyone .
Just thought I would ask ...... How bad /sore/disfigured etc does a joint have to be before the drs will consider referral to a surgeon . I can still walk , but the joint below my big toe gets very sore . It is not absolute agony , but it's like walking on a very large marble , just under the joint. Walking barefoot is out of the question .
Hope you are all mostly pain free , as much as possible.
