Well it has been 8 months since my op and honestly I wish I never bothered. I am daily in more pain now from the toe and surrounding it ; have a numb sensation surrounding the toe quite often and my range of movement isnt the greatest since the op. Also im getting used to walking off balance now I wonder if any problems will arise in the future due to this.
After exercise it still swells although not anywhere near as bad as it first did.
I was told that the average healing time ranges between 6-12 months. Well im now 3/4 of the way through my "healing period" and its doesnt still feel like im over the hill. I have since put on 2 1/2 stone weight through sheer greediness but not being able to do my 3/4 runs a week is contributing to my ever increasing waist line. I have since started walking 5km daily again to build up my legs and whilst training to regain proper balance it will take time but in hope it works.
Anyone else experienced difficulty this far on? Or are finding it hard to exercise.
