I had left foot surgery 8 months ago (navicular area). My foot has been hurting a lot also causing ankle pain. Can the mitek bone anchor be removed?

I had left foot surgery 8 months ago (navicular area). My foot has been hurting a lot also causing ankle pain. Can the mitek bone anchor be removed?

It would be: Difficult to remove but it can be removed. I would question whether or not its the actual anchor that is hurting. Usually a tendon is tacked down when using the anchor and perhaps the tendon is tied down to tight or something like that. In cases like this always ask the doc why he thinks you still have pain and what your options are. ...Read more

I had foot surgery six months ago for a broken navicular. Everything went well but I tend to get a lot of foot cramps now. Will that ever resolve?

I had foot surgery six months ago for a broken navicular. Everything went well but I tend to get a lot of foot cramps now. Will that ever resolve?

Talk to the surgeon.: Foot cramping beginning 6 months after the surgery means that the surgery may have effected the function of the foot. The solution is ask the surgeon for his solution. You may need therapy, orthotics or a combination of the two to turn the problem around. I doubt if this will clear up without some type of intervention, in fact, it may increase without treatment. ...Read more

Had foot surgery 8 months ago. What type of infection can the mitek bone anchor cause? Saw two diff podiatrist (no help). Is mild crps the pain factor

Infection?: Any surgery can result in an infection. However, infection 8 months later is rare. Blood work and special bone scans would be needed to make sure if you have an infection or not. Complex regional pain syndrome is very serious and would need professional treatments including physical therapy and medications. Post-op Kidner procedures could benefit from custom orthotics and MLS Laser treatments. ...Read more

Question I am 5 weeks out of right foot surgery and my foot has a "cold feeling" and numb still. I have RA and had a joint/bone/cartilage replacement.

RA s/p foot surgery: The numbness can be from nerve irritation, nerve effects due to surgery as you cut and may cut some nerves when you replace bone or due to limited blood supply, The coldness can be due to blood supply interruption but that is more concerning as you need adequate supply. Call l the doctor today or go to ER, they can do dopplers and check blood supply, if toes are purple /black that is a emergency ...Read more

I had foot surgery on my left foot to fix my flat foot and the doctor said that they fused my bone and put a screw. When can I walk? Physical therapy?

This discussion: Should ONLY take place with your surgeon. From your description it is unclear if you had a subtalar stent placed in or if you had a flatfoot reconstruction. If a subtalar stent was put in then the "screw" isn't really a screw its an implant and it did not get placed into any bone, rather was placed ina a canal between the ones. ...Read more

Be careful: Not to eat so much. Since you will be sitting around, you may have a propensity to eat more, if you are going to eat more try and eat healthy - fruits/veggies. Likely, your foot usage will be limited, so that really only leaves you with upper body routines. Even, these you must be cautious with as sweating may be bad for your wound.
