Re: cheilectomy or not??

There are various degrees of structural deformity that lead to a hallux limitus/rigidus. The cheilectomy is a procedure for a less severe deformity. The doctor was being honest when he/she told you that the procedure might or might not last. The results can be influenced by (among several things) the level of activity afterward. Only you can decide whether it is the right time for you to have the surgery.

Good luck.
