Hi Mary, thanks for your quick reply. I had Hallux Rigidus grade 3 in my left big toe, i have it fixed with 1 internal screw, Xrays showed good beginnings of fusion, although i know it will be a further 6 weeks until it is solid. Yes i am walking (carefully!) but i was not told when i could start driving again, do you know? I am worried that i may damage it at this early stage. I am also unsure as to whether i should be attempting to walk "normally" ie toe off rather than flat footed.Look forward to your reply.
Wishing you a speedy recovery too. Sam
