Re: Flat Feet: MBA Implant

Hey Lennon! My doctor mentioned a woman who lived in Australia and could not afford two trips. So she did both feet in one go, and she went home in a wheelchair. It's definitely been done before, but it isn't recommended because having both feet out makes life very difficult. The recovery time should depend a lot on your age. I'm 17 right now, and I had to surgery as a 16 year old. My doctor told me 16 is still pretty late, and had I gotten the surgery as a little kid, it would have healed in a matter of 2 weeks and the results would have been excellent. For me, it took about 4-5 weeks for one foot and 3 weeks for the other (one foot was in better condition). I think it will probably take you longer than it took me, but I think by 3 months, you'll definitely be able to walk around and maybe even jog a bit. But running will definitely have to wait at least 4-5 months
