The game is a foot [Foot Adventure Part 1]

not today satanGreeting my fantastic friends! Today we will be talking about something new and different: feet! As some of you may know I have developed a bone island and bunion on my left foot and started getting one on the right. I’ve been getting steroid injections into the big toe joint for almost a year and my doctor has informed me that I’m “above his pay grade”. I’ve been referred to an orthopedic specialist who works with individuals who have rheumatoid disease and foot issues. We are hoping he may be able to come up with a non-surgical alternative. The typical treatment for those with increasingly worsening bunions are as follows [in order from most conservative to least].

  • Change in footwear [Done]
  • Braces, spacers, orthotics [done]
  • Daily NSAID [done]
  • Steroid injections [done]
  • Surgery

I will update with how things progress. Fingers crossed that I get some guidance on this. Also I would like to give a shout out to my amazing fiance who after watching me limp around and rubbing my gross feet encouraged me to seek out a better solution.

  1. I’ll be very much interested in what the new orthopedist has to say.  Sounds as though he or she will address your specific foot problems, I’m glad to hear. Your informative posts are so welcome.  Thank you!
