Walking has been great, I was in a splint for 2 weeks, got my stiches out, then had a fiberglass cast on for 4 weeks, went to the cam boot for 2 weeks, which after a few days I could walk in that, and 6 weeks I was able to wear my husbands old running shoes, I am currently near 10 weeks post op on the lapidus...
I can wear my running shoes to the gym, they are a bit snug, but not overly bad, and i don't wear them for long periods of time, i am worried my toe will move back or something
walking in the morning is rough my foot is pretty tight, and if i am out for a period of time it starts to get slow, i just take it off when i get in the car, my toe is stiff too still, but i can move it and wiggle it, i think it's making ok progress
i am in the gym 5 days a week, i do the bike and eliptical, and for swimming, though he said i can not keep it submerged that long until i'm totally cleared at the doctor, which is about 12 weeks-ish, but doing ok!
i just really want to be able to run!
yeah my foot feels funny when i stretch it, but nothing feels as if it were going to tear
