What kind of mobility is possible after metatarsophalangeal joint surgery? The websites I’ve looked at seem pretty vague on this, so I’m asking, have any of the Dopers had big toe joint surgery? Any surgery for arthritic MTP joints (not bunions), from scraping off the bone spurs, shortening the toe bones, joint fusion, or full blown joint replacement? What was your range of motion afterwards? Were you able to do toe intensive activities, like cross-country skiing or many yoga postures, afterwards?
