I have a 15 year old girl who has lived with multiple enchondromitosis her whole life. Not the average oliers either from toe to now the brain each and ever bone in her body. He will be fine with hie Toe even if it cone back as long as no cancer is invoved. My daughter now has cancer involved. Its inop and always has been for her from birth.

Just deal and use what god gave you and do you follow-ups. Dont feel sorry for yourself or others ust be gratful.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
There is 5-10 % chance of recurrence. Nothing special in diagnostics is needed for monitoring. Just have annual check up with GP.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
