Re: Lt foot subtalar athrodesis

I had a Lt. foot subtalar athrodesis in March of this year, I had 2 screws. The one screw was too long & went to the outer side of my left foot causing pain on the nerve & my little toe feeling numb. In Aug. I had that screw removed, but I continue to have pain in that nerve when I stand very long & my little toe continues to be numb. The MD states only time will tell if this is a permanent condition or not. Is this right? I need to go back to work, but I'm unable to work like this. Thank you for helping me in this matter.

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
