    Over the Counter insert after Flat Foot Reconstructive Surgery

    13 Weeks Post Op still struggling to get walking in a shoe. I have ordered and returned so many shoes over the last several weeks that I am going crazy. My surgeon aka Dr. Death. heehee wants me in an OTC arch support. Does anyone have any recommendations. He said he won't send me me for custom orthotics until I am 6 months. Just not sure what to put in my shoe for to minimize the discomfort.

    Any thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Gicki, my OS had me get a pair of Super feet OTC orthotics. They come in different colors. I was told to get the green ones. I think I was 16 weeks post-op when I started wearing shoes though. Hope you find something that works for you.
