: I had foot surgery on July 20, 2000. It's been a pretty good recovery. But, at almost 3 months I am still

: experienced swelling after almost 3 months? It's so frustrating because I'm having to buy new shoes
: for temporary use. I'm wondering how long this swelling will last.
I also had foot surgery on Sept. 22, 2000 and I have to admit it was a lot more painful than I had anticipated.
I just had the pin removed this week by the bunion area and next week will have the pin in my toe removed
and hopefully that will not be painful. I still have quite a bit of swelling and still wearing that
tacky cast boot! I hope to be wearing sneakers next week after the pin removal.
My question is I am an avid exerciser and not doing my step aerobics for the past
5 weeks is killing me, how long before I can go back to step aerobics and power walking. At
least I can use the gym and do stationery biking and using the nautilus equipment.
I eventually will have to have the other foot done but not till next year. Thanks
