Now i have to undergo for an hallux valgus correction operation .?


Doctor wrote all tests. But ECG is not good it seems. When ECG is not good, can they do operation or they postpone for ecg treatment? How many days it take for ECG recovery? Please help.
----------

It depends on how abnormal the ECG is. They may want to do a cardiac stress test to see if there are any blocked arteries that may affect the risk of your surgery.  (+ info)

Anyone had an operation for Hallux rigidus? Was it a success and do you recommend it? Any advice?


I know all about it but I would like to hear form somebody who actually had the operation. Would you go through it again?
----------

if you ask my patients, they'll probably tell you yes. it's a successful surgery for correcting bunions. make sure it's with a foot/ankle surgeon in an orthopaedic practice.  (+ info)

Any exercise suggestions for someone who had bunion(hallux valgus) surgery?


Especially for the muscles in their legs, other than swimming.

And they can't walk much so stuff they can do at home while sitting or on the floor.
They are 25 years old.
----------

Try doing a steady routine with ankel weights on.  (+ info)

How to ease arthritis pain in foot?


I suffer from swollen bone behind big toe, old injury which has osteo arthritis now - podiatrists says hallux limitus, and taking glucosamine and chondritin, with little relief, sore when I walk. Wearing orthotics too. Any other natural remedies I could try? Doctor not very helpful. I am swimming but miss the walking.
----------

I'm in tune with you, and I suggest you take an allergy pill before you go to bed. Take the one that compares to Benedryl, because it's much cheaper than Benedryl , and it's available at Kroger and many other places. Osteoarthritis is caused by worn-out joints and is not to be confused with rheumatoid arthritis, which is caused by allergy. However, The pill that I've recommended works for both. Good luck.  (+ info)

What is the recovery time after Hallux Rigidus/Bone Spur Surgery?


I'm a 33 yr old female who had the hallux rigidus surgery on 07/11/08 on my right foot. The surgeon said it would be about 3-4 day recovery and I would be back on my feet, even playing tennis!!!! It is going into WEEK 5 and still in a lot of discomfort and pain.

I am able to get my foot into a tennis shoe barely. My experiences are swelling and pain whenever I have my foot down for more than a few minutes. It is painful to put weight on my foot, mostly on the ball of my foot, my other toes and the inside of my foot. Doing simple things like the dishes, taking a shower and driving is just terrible. If I'm not doing any of the simple household things, I have my foot elevated. The worst is in the evening because it seems to swell more often. Sometimes, it also feels like my circulation has been cut off.

This was my first week back to work and was pretty challenging getting around. I'm hobbling around without crutches. I'm not sure if it is getting better or worse. I'm doing the exercises of bending my toe back hoping this will help.

Please let me know if anyone has had similar experiences. How much more time it is going to take to be able to walk without limping and feeling pain???? Is there anything I can do to speed up the recovery time? Please help!!!
----------

You have something wrong there. I had my right foot done about a month ago and it is fine and dandy. I just had my left foot done on August 1 and other than it feeling like I have a big bruise on my heel I am fine. If you have swelling and all that other stuff going on you need to talk to your doctor that operated on you. Mine is great.   (+ info)

Problems that may occur when having operartions too young? Im 16 at the moment. ( Hollux limitus)?


HI ;D i have a problem with my both my big toe joints.People between ages 35+ usually get it, and i got it when im 15 :( here is what i got.. just to help u get an idea:

http://www.latrobe.edu.au/mrc/assets/hallux_limitus.jpg

its not in any horrible.. at all but very annoying...

well anyway i got problem 1 christmas ago. I do dancing you see which focuses a lot of pressure on the big toe joint. Basically, my joint mobility is not as big as it used to be. I have a bone restricting movement and it hurts when lifting my toe up ( right toe and left toe)

So, my main question here, is, that if i was to have an operation to remove this irraiting bone, it would have to be when im 18+ ! 0_0 i've already waited one, i have to wait another 2 :( So would be the consequences of having the operation currently, when im 16.

NOt only does this stop me dancing, it prevents doing stuff like running. ITs just so annoying!! Im was such an active guy, and all of a sudden i've just stopped.

So whats the consequence?

+ plus has anybody, by chance had this operation?
----------

Hey, I havent had this surgery, but my friend has, he had it done when he was 15, and hes fine now, hes back to playing hockey and fooling around, and he only had to wait 2 months after the surgery. :)  (+ info)

What is this whitish spot on my hallux?


On both of my thumb toes, there's a little swollen spot on the sides facing the middle. It doesn't hurt at all, but it's been there for about 2 months maybe. Is this normal? Is it caused by too much running or something?

Here's a pic in case I'm not being clear:

----------

it is a callus. They get confused a lot with Plantar warts, especially on the feet. Soak feet in warm water with epsions salt for 10 to 15 minutes then scrub with pumas stone or foot file. over several days it will go away.
Possible complications include worsening and this actually does become rather painful and can feel like a stone bruise. At the point where yours is though, very easily treated as above.  (+ info)

My hallux (big toe) is quite longer than my other toes?


I have no idea what you call this as the second toe being longer is more commonly known online, my second toe is 2 and half cm and my hallux is 4cm (I'm a size 5 UK), is this rare or just less commonly known and if you saw someones feet like this (my feet aren't ugly) would you think they were ugly or not notice?
Club foot or CTEV, is where you're born with your feet inwards (my nephew has this)
----------

its normal. i have the opposite effect. my hallux is shorter than the rest of my toes. no one is going to care enough about your feet to let it determine whether want to be friends or your lover so dont let it get to you. =)  (+ info)

What is bunion and hallux valgus? What are the causes? What are the treatments?


Hallux valgus is a condition when the big toe of the foot called the hallux starts to deviate inward towards the direction of the little toe. As the big toe drifts over into valgus, a bump starts to develop on the inside of the big toe over the metatarsal bone. This bone prominence on the inner edge for the metatarsal is referred to as a bunion.

Bunions are generally hereditary but wearing footwear that is too tight or causing the toes to be squeezed together is undoubtedly the main contributing factor for the cause of bunions and hallux valgus.

The treatment of a bunion depends entirely on how uncomfortable it is. The initial goal of treatment options is to relieve pressure on the bunion and any symptoms that may be present and to halt or slow the progression of the joint deformity. There is no effective way of getting rid a bunion without surgery.

Halux Limitus - is it because I have Graves Disease.?


After posting a previous question, Rhianna correctly suggested I had Halux Limitus (thanks Rhianna).

Will I come across as being a bit silly if I ask my GP on Friday if my Graves Disease has caused this - I seem to have so many joint problems since being diagnosed as having Graves Disease?
----------

Hi AVAG

Glad I helped a little; you can ask your GP anything, you won't come across as silly and he has a duty to explain the possible causes of any medical condition to you. Never feel inferior. Even when I often ask my GP to explain things and he "huffs" as though I am putting him to too much trouble,I just ignore it and continue to ask the question and and add few more on for good measure!

It could be, Graves is linked to Arthritic problems etc; however I don't think there is a direct link between Halux limitus and Graves disease. I think it's really due to general wear and tear of the joints, it also isn't always as a result of trauma, but often it is. Sports people often have this problem and wearing incorrect footwear causing compression can be a factor too. Dysesthesia can occur.

Symptoms result from a degenerative arthropathy of the metatarsophalangeal. There is a bilateral and familial link. I don't know to be honest, I'll star this, maybe Dr Frank will see it.

Hope you feel better soon
