Thanks for replying. Just to answer a few of your questions.The surgery usually takes 50 minutes, however because I also had hammer toes and had my toes shortened it ended up taking 2 and a half hours all up. I was on pain killers for about 5 days, there was a slight amount of pain but today it has been a week and I am feeling fine only slightly uncomfortable. I am in surgical shoes, which I am not really liking because I find them fairly heavy, but I guess it was better then a cast. I hope all goes well with your surgery I'm sure you will be very happy with the results.
Best Wishes ... Joanne
: Hello JoAnne. I hope you are doing well after all that. I too have them on both feet but will probably do one at a time. I'm sure because of your young age you were able to have both done.
: Didn't realize that they would do so many procedures at once though. How long were you in surgery? Are you on lots of pain medicine? Also wondering if you are wearing surgery shoes or after all that did you end up with heavy casts?
: Im sure you will heal fast. Good luck with your recovery.
