Morning all. My Surgery was a Left Hallux Valgue with transfer metartarsalgia and unstable lesser MTP joints.. Left fott Scarf and Akin Osteotomy with lesser toe Weil's osteotomies and Pip joint excision arthroplasties as needed. Well time is getting on and i am almost 7 weeks PO. I had my Pin taken out of my Hammer Toe goodness me my Surgeon yanked it out so quickly took my breath away. My Big toe seems ok no pain at all. The numbness is still quite bad which i thought it would be. I had a stitch behind my Hammer Toe which my Surgeon pulled out, my stitches are dissolvable which is good. My Toe where he took the Pin out is swollen more so than the other, i guess it is because of the Pin. When i went for my 6 weeks checkup. After my Surgeon yanked my pin out my Surgeon asked me to walk, my goodness i was unable to put my foot flat on the floor to walk, is very painful to do so. I am seeing my Surgeon in 6 weeks will chat then. I bought some Birkenstocks sandals as i have read they are comfortable they really are, but alas i am unable to get anything on my left foot, still wearing my Surgical Boot. My question to you all is this, how long was it before you could walk with no pain and your foot flat on the floor. Have a wonderful Monday x
