Ok, a little history, the past 8 months, my Big toe on my lesft foot has been hurting at the joint, and about 5 months ago, a large, bony bump developed on the joint. so, I go to see a specialist, and apparently its a genetic condition where the bone behind the joint (I circled it in the attached pic) is higher than the other bones, meaning i have very little range of motion in that toe, leading to bone spurs, calcitic growths and worst of all, arthritis.
Attached Image
The doctor says Ill need a total of 3 surgeries, one next month to remove the spurs and arthritic material, another next year for a metal implant (the arthritis has destroyed most of the cartilige in that joint) and i may have to get the joint fused.

(Sigh)...

Oh bummer man... sorry to hear that. I'm sure you'll be fine though. You should be thankful that condition ain't in your hand or something!
