I went to my podiatry appointment yesterday to see if the pain in my right food was bad enough to delay the surgery or if it was just superficial pain and it was going to okay to walk on it for two months while I recover my Taylor's Bunyon surgery on my left foot.
The doctor said that it appears to be avascular nephritis meaning due to lack of blood flow in my right food the end of my 1st metatarsal (big toe joint) is starting to deteriorate and crumble. He said that this is pretty rare since it usually happens in the ankle and not the foot. So of course instead of scheduling my surgery he ordered an MRI on my foot plus some blood work to make sure my kidneys and liver and all my other internal organs are working enough to withstand a surgery.
I then told him I was getting a CT on my kidneys on Friday and that worried him a little so he cancelled the MRI with contrast and just ordered a regular MRI.
Whats in store for me this week is to schedule my MRI before Friday (cross your fingers they have a slot open) then get some blood work for my Urologist, then go to see my Podiatrist Friday morning then off to get my CT Friday afternoon.
I really hope that this turns out okay and that there is nothing to worry about (at least pertaining to my kidneys) I know that the prognosis for my foot is pretty bad but he said that he will most likely NOT do surgery on my left foot bunion. But do surgery on my right foot and most likely do a bone graft to fix the missing chunk on the end of my metatarsal.
This is serisouly crazy! I feel like I am 85!
