They messed up my foot on routine bunionectomy. 5 surgeries later, I have a fused big toe with giant screw thru it and four pins in 2&3 toes. My big toe never hits the ground when I walk. It throws off my whole left side of my body. Many injections, several bouts of physical therapy, and I was told there was nothing they could do. I live in extreme pain most of time. Not only in foot, but it radiates up my leg, into my hip and lower back because my whole gait is off. I'm 39 years old and struggling to keep a job and take care of myself and daughter. Maybe some people have better luck, but its not a necessarily a miracle cure. Do your research and think long and hard.View Thread
