Received a letter from my surgeon that goes on to my GP - Chronic right foot pain with degenerate calcaneocuboid and tarsometatarsal joints. The only operations which can be considered would be fusion surgeries which can have a down side and there may be no way back if it's not successful.
Gee, where's the positive element in that statement? 'Degenerate' concerns me. How can I keep this at bay? Joint pills, physio, go to arthritis management places? I don't need this at 61. Fast forward to 85 and maybe I could understand the old age aspect of wear and tear on the joints.
