I haven't been here for a while, mostly cause I've been scrambling to get myself ready for grad school and get my foot in tip-top shape for the long days ahead that will be spent commuting on foot. It has been about 2.5 months since my surgery.
My toe is actually about 90% as flexible as it used to be. Of course it hurts to bend it all the way, but at least it can be done. All I'm waiting on is the swelling, and I know that will take a long time to resolve. Overall, I'm happy so far with the outcome.
I just really have an issue w/ swelling, because even before surgery, my feet would swell a lot in the heat. Has anyone used compression socks or support hose? What kind did you get? Did it help?
I hope everyone else's recoveries are also going smoothly. I'm a huge baby when it comes to surgery, so I'm convinced that if I can make it, anyone can. Good luck to everyone
