I have been under the hospital now for 4 years and had several cortisone injections in my big toe for arthritis. The last time was the most painful as the joint is now closed. Every time I go the see the specialist he asks me if I want to be booked in for the Cheilectomy operation, but every time I think yes I need it, I hear negative stories of people who have had either this or bunion operations. I am 49 and keep very active and the pain can last a few days and then I get some time I am pain free, so I am still thinking that maybe I should delay this. My question is, has anyone on here had this operation and it been successful?
Thanks in advance for you help :)
