Surgery?

I was recently told by an orthopedic surgeon & also a pedorthist that I most likely have CMTA. The surgeon is suggesting surgery, and the pedorthist said he is nervous about orthodics working well for me, as there are so many issues with my foot & leg. I had always just thought that I had a bunion & hammer toes, and it was progressively getting worse, so I asked my dr. for a referral. I was worried that I was not able to move my toes well & was starting to have pain when walking. I had not heard of CMT. I'm wondering if anyone has had success with surgery? If I do have CMT (waiting to get an EMG), will this still progress even after the surgery? I'm just starting research & trying to come to terms with what I have found out in the last few days. Thank you for any advice or comments!
