I don't meet with my doctor until Monday, but I finally got my hot little hands on my radiology report. Findings: "Mild degenerative changes are present in the midfoot." I would be willing to guess that mild degenerative changes are also present in my other foot. They were present in my knee too when I dealt with that injury. The MRI report also notes a small amount of fluid in the first MTP joint and within the first and third intermetatarsal bursa--I imagine that's where my pain is coming from. We'll see what can be done about that, but having dealt with this for a while, I'm even more sure that this is a form or gait (or footwear) issue. I need a good PT who is going to explore every angle of this, but I've done that twice in the past 18 months and it requires a significant investment of time. Since neither attempt has been successful, I'm not into just jumping into to something.
Thoughts from the peanut gallery? I see the doctor in a week, but he probably won't have much interest in my case unless it's surgical.
