Thank you for the post. Not looking forward to surgery, but with degenerative discs I don't know what other option there is.

He does have deteriorated discs in his back. I, too, am a bit leary of this diagnosis as this same doctor told him back in 2009 that his foot issue was a genetic disorder and could be fixed with surgery and when I said to him, "you don't think this is a genetic issue?" his replied, "oh no". That sent up red flags immediately. My husband has other issues that make surgery somewhat risky & my thought is that this doctor just doesn't want to do surgery on him and is passing him off to another doctor……

Thank you for the reply. He has been to an orthopedic doctor who advises foot turning out is due to weak muscles/tendons which, he says, is caused by back issues. He doesn't have bunions. He has a large callus on side of foot due to his walking on the side of the foot.

I apologize if this the incorrect forum. My husband has been advised by his orthopedic doctor that his foot problems (muscles, tendons are very weak and his foot turns outward, he walks on the side of his foot) actually stem from back issues and has referred to him to a back specialist. We are wondering if anyone in this group has been told this by their doctor? Thank you for any and all feedback!

Thanks for the reply. I haven't seen any mention of the ointment before. As I am not a fan of swallowing medicine, this interested me as I will rub on medicine.

My husband was just diagnosed with glaucoma. We are interested in knowing what meds have been prescribed by your doctors. Also, what type of action plan has your doctors implemented, if any? Look forward to your responses. Thank you!
