Background: 23 year old femald. I fractured my sesamoid at age 20. It was misdiagnosed until about a month ago. Since then I have had a steroid shot, foot inserts, and steroid pills. Now I am on crutches and in a surgical shoe. The doctor has said that my bone is dead and basically my only chance at treatment is surgery.

I'm having the sesamoid removed on May 5th. I have done a lot of research and what I've found is beginning to scare me away from surgery.

Can anyone tell me of a personal experience dealing with this surgery?

Doctor, do you recommend surgery for someone as young as me? Am I likely to encounter more foot problems in my later years?

Thanks all for any advice,
