Hello, yes i recently had an xray of my right foot because I developed a lump near my ankle area. the report states that Manifestations of Freiberg s Infraction are present. There is flattening of the second metatarsal head, narrowing of the adjacent joint space, intra-articular osseous loose bodies, expansion of the second phalangeal base and widening of the second metatarsal head. My MD says I will probably need surgery. I am 51 years old and will be consulting with an ortho surgeon. Do you think this is my only choice?
