I have a dislocated third toe (xray can be provided) which feels numb, difficult to walk barefoot and may be capsulitis related.
My doctor is leaving it up to me to decide whether to have surgery or not. He said he will pin the toe in place, shorten my second toe and rebuild tendon(?) He opined that it won't get worse but if it gets in the way with normal life to have it repaired.
I am an avid hiker, was planning on doing the AT, have done the NY 46 high peaks and am an organist. Organ players play with their feet but so far has only been a minor hindrance.
Advice? Thoughts? Opinion? What would you do?
