cheilectomy done 2/15/12

I will try to post my progress, because it seems fear is all over this board. that kept me from doing it for so long. Had my left foot done on wed. Off of all the pain meds now. first 2 days were rough but tolerable. Have been moving the toe every day since and the day of the operation. Felt I picked the best doctor I could. so I will just wait and see for now.

Oh, you should be ready to go dancing by now! That's great, though. Keep posting so we know where things stand.

Re: cheilectomy done 2/15/12

I had my left foot done this morning. To be honest the pain is no worse than what I had to deal with on a daily basis due to hallux rigidus. My doc said i would be playing golf in 5 weeks!

Continued smooth recovery!
