Bad News for Java

Two months ago, I thought I had a mild but painful foot injury that happened in the gym.  This morning I found out from the podiatrist that it’s much worse.  One of my toes has lost all its cartilege, making it very painful to walk.  Seeing the x-rays made me uncomfortable.

The podiatrist and I are starting a low-level fix, but if the lower level fixes don’t work, surgery will be the ulimate answer.  In the meantime: “Try to keep it straight.”

    So sorry that it is serious. Aging is one disappointment after another, I fear. Suggest that you get podiatrist to recommend brand and style of shoe best for your feet. Hubby and I both had (different) foot troubles that improved a lot changing shoe brands with specific podiatrist recommendations. Hope surgery can be avoided, but will send positive thought that conservative treatment will do the job.
