12/15/06 I had an Austin bunionectomy with Akin osteomy on the left foot for a sever bunion condition.
5/18/07 I had a hemi joint implant on the left big toe due to damaged cartlidge and arthritis doing damage to the joint. The dr did quite a bit of ligament/tendon reconstruction.
The left big toe after the implant was very wobbly(something similiar to a bobble head), but has tightened up some since.
I am now wearing a EE tennis shoe width because there is still some swelling.
I tried to find a shoe with as 'wide a toe box' as possible.
I also purchased some sandals with adjustable Velcro straps, again to adjust for the swelling.
I find that if I wear the tennis shoes for a whole day during normal activities, at the end of the day, [B]the top portion of the big toe is 'starting to slant towards the toe next to it'[/B]
Remember, these tennis shoes have a wide toe box.
If I wear the sandals with the adjustable Velcro straps for the entire day, the top portion [B]'does not slant towards the toe next to it'.[/B]
Is there going to be a point in time, when the big toe will become more stable, and not slant towards the toe next to it??
Is anyone having this same experience??
