8 Weeks Post-Op Toe Fusion


I am 8 weeks post-op of having my great toe fused with a bone graft from my ankle. I got the pins out in week 6 (no permanent screws) and got the cast off this week. I am now in a boot, and it really feels good to be able to put weight on it. Though I cannot wait to get into shoes and back to the gym (and hopefully running). All the muscle atropy has caused my knee to be sore, even though I did a lot of leg lifts with the cast on. Its just amazing how quickly you lose muscles though.

Anyway, just a quick update. Thanks to everyone for the advice you've all given. This board is the best!!

Re: 8 Weeks Post-Op Toe Fusion


Glad to hear that the fusion has gone well for you! The muscles will come back before you know it once you are able to get shoes on and start going again. -eko
