Hi everyone, I'm 75 years old and have struggled with painful feet for many years with hammertoes, bunions, and now with dropped metatarsal pads and neuromas. I'm afraid my compensating for the pain is beginning to aggravate my right bone-on-bone knee (I had a TKR in 2013 on the left.) I'd really appreciate hearing from the "more mature" members of the forum regarding their views on foot surgery at an advanced age. I hated my recovery with my TKR -- and I'm a strong woman. Surgery went well , but I don't do well with opioids; I had a hard time trying to stay in front of the pain and I bought into the "start right away" PT. I never recovered my balance or ability to walk properly after the TKR. I live alone, and will get help for a few hours during the day, but I'm getting anxious at the thought of dealing with the pain and icing by myself. I'd love to be able to spend the last phase of my life relatively "pain free" in my feet, but not sure if that will happen. Would appreciate anyone's thoughts .
