Hello, I’m new here but would like some input from others about foot surgery in rheumatoid arthritis. My feet are very deformed from arthritis. I saw a surgeon last week who said he can put a metal rod into my big toes to straighten them and then remove parts of the bones on the remaining toes to make them less painful when walking. However he has told me to think about it because I am still very active and with the right footwear my feet problems have not stopped me walking reasonable distances or cycling.
Have others had foot operations and what has been the outcomes?
