I had foot surgery last Friday for joint implant in my right big toe worm out by arthritis. I've had awful pain in my feet for two years now and it got to the point where I had to have somethng done. The surgery went well and although I was in much more pain than I ever thought possible, it has been healing and I was able to walk carefully in post op shoe without crutches for the first time Wednesday.
I have now done something to my left foot by having to put so much weight on it that it now hurts worse than my right foot. I woke in the middle of the night in excruciating pain. The ball of my foot hurts to the touch and seems to stretch down the sole of my foot. This started two days ago but has suddenly gotten to the point where I can't put any weight on it. I have my appointment Monday to remove the stitches so of course I will tell him, it won't be hard to figure out when I come hobbling in. But I am so deperessed that I went through all this pain only to have the good foot hurt worse than the bad one. I knew I was going to have to have the same surgery ont he other foot but was hoping for some relief. I'm afraid I pushed it over the edge and I hate sitting here not able to get around.
