Re: Hallux Rigidus Foot Surgery
My big toe was fused in March 2004, but not due to hallux rigidus. The recovery for me was not that bad. I was allowed to be partially weight bearing, had two pins sticking out of the end of my big toe for six weeks. After the pins were removed I was allowed to wear tennis shoes, after twelve weeks I was discharged. My shoe restriction is heel height on one inch, other than that I can wear any shoe I am comfortable wearing. The first six months it felt ackward to walk, but now it really does not bother me.
If you have specif questions, I would be glad to try to answer them. Good luck. -eko
