Hi Maria,
Let me tell you i do not like this hammertoe thing. Does the pad of your foot hurt also? Mine does, it feels like it is larger than on my other foot. I started out years ago with only foot problems before my back problems and they are bad. Hard to do anything when your foot hurts. I see my ortho foot surgeon back in 6 weeks. I also have blisters on some toes already from rubbing on the top of my shoe. It is the same sneakers i have been wearing for a year so no change and i have never worn high heels. I would fall instantly .

I just go the Ok for shots tomorrow. for my lumbar spine. I am so excited. My doc just said OK yesterday and he does them on Wed and i thought there was no way i would get them tomorrow. My insurance approved it already. I do have a ppo, but I didn't think it would happen that quickly.
I really wanted to have them before my travels.

My poor dad is not doing good at all. He has a treatable form of cancer , but is not eating. he says he is not hungry. He needs to force himself to eat. They also have an HMO and it has been over a week and his injection to boost his white blood cells has not been approved yet so he is too weak was not able to get round 2 of chemo yesterday. I just hope i can convince him to eat.
I'm sorry to hear your toes are being a pain and your back is too, i can relate to it all.
