Chronic Pain from Screws in feet.

  1. Hey blades,

    First off, I apologize for posting another " Do I qualify? " thread but I'm unsure about the qualifications for being diagnosed with chronic pain.​

    I have flat feet. So flat that i can make suction cup noises with them if I walk on tile flooring.

    But this summer I had reconstructive foot surgery on my left, the right will be done on the 19th of december.

    Because my feet are so flat, doctors need to cut some tendons to give flexibility. In addition, A screw goes right in the middle of my ankle to change the way my foot rotates when walking.


    They said it would hurt for 3 weeks up to a month...
    I got this surgery done in june and I still feel the screw everyday. It blows let me tell you. I need this surgery because my back will be destroyed when im older from my flat feet. Some doctors told my parents I would need braces to walk when I was born. And every podiatrist claims I have some of the worst feet they've ever seen. But im still walking despite what some say.

    So to get to the question. Im almost positive that I'm going to be dealing with pain in my feet for the rest of my life. I told the doctors and theres really nothing they can do about it, its just soreness and irritability, but its my feet. It's not like i have a choice not to use them. It makes walking long distances a bitch... and when im high it honestly takes the pain and pressure of off them. Its great!

    but if I wanted to be diagnosed with chronic pain how would I go about it? I know some MMJ users have gotten diagnosed with chronic pain by complaining about back aches, which are entirely unprovable by xrays.
    however, I have two giant screws that light up like a christmas tree if you xray my feet. If i state my claim, and have prof, will two screws from foot surgery be enough to claim MMJ? I know it differs from states but Chronic pain seems to fall under every MMJ law for states that allow it.

    sorry for the long rant, hopefully someone can shed some light:smoke:
