Well I had the op two weeks ago. Terrible pain for first week but hardly any in the second week! Bandage coming off today. I do now have all the original pains worse due to crutches though- my wrists hurt so much and so does my opposite heel, from bearing all the weight!
Also my left ankle from walking only on my heel for two weeks. Oh we'll, getting there. Back to work in a week.
I'm seeing a rheumatologist next week so hopefully they can tell me whether I have OA in my hands as well as my feet, or CMT, or fibromyalgia, or hypermobility syndrome. GP thinks its the latter but I'm not sure the symptoms quite fit. It will be helpful to know which it is.
