Do any of you have problems with hammertoe, and have any of you had surgery? I saw a podiatrist a couple of weeks ago (before I saw my rheumy for the first time), and he wants to do hammertoe surgery on my feet. He said that hammertoe is not uncommon in RA, but I'm having a really hard time talking myself into a surgery that removes joints, fuses bones, and requires a long recovery. I have not spoken to my rheumy about it, and plan to bring it up at my next visit, but I'm curious about what others have experienced.
