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.

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
