Re: problems after fusion of the big toes

Here we have an orthotics department as part of the orthopedic centre and when I last went to see my consultant he told me to bring a pair in, I am getting them today as the swelling in my foot has now gone down, it only took a couple of days, will let you know how they are.

Re: problems after fusion of the big toes

Hi Debbie...well the shoes do take some of the work out of walking...they split the sole of the shoe up to the begining of the heel and insert a piece of hard shaped rubber and glue it back together again, worth doing on your fav shoes...

Re: problems after fusion of the big toes

Do you know of all the times I have been to California, I have never been to LA, the people we visit now live in San Clamente and won't go into the city, next time we go maybe we will go to LA first.
I am now 52 and am a paint rectifier and launch/product coach motor companies so most of the day is spent on my feet, how about you, are you still working?
I am pleased to hear that your feet are feeling better!!!!


Have a good time.
