Hi guus me again....been a while.

So...ive been doing well, got some skechers at about 4.5/5 weeks and they have been a god send, i came out my boot early as it was causing me more pain and swelling.ive also been driving again and dont find it sore. I had my 6 week check today surgeon said all looks good...BUT i found out i actually had 2 screws in my foot lol i think its a good thing i didnt know until now. Although today my foot has been sore when i saw where the pins were i saw that thats where my screws were. I hope everyone is doing ok. X

      Ive been lucky so far. I had pain first 3days. After that i sat with foot up.no pain. No swelling. New balance is a sneaker, kind of expensive. I probably won't be able to wear one for a few more weeks

      New Balance is a brand of shoes. They make wider fitting shoes. It could be the reason bev's Dr recommended them
