    Wow, you have healed well.  Looking great. I'm 3 weeks and tomorrow I see my foot for the first time when dressing is removed.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

      It was such a relief to have the dressing taken off and the dissolvable stitches tidied.  K wire out next week, then I think he said some wide fitting normal shoes.   I've out some photos on my own before and after discussion.  Did your toe feel strange, I can't move it and the joint is very stiff?

      Oh I know, it's like losing a couple of pounds weigh from your feet when the bandages come off.

      Yes the toe does feel strange at first. When you have your wire out you will need to start messaging the toe and pushing it up and down to loosen the joint. I didn't have a wire , I had a screw put in my second toe. So started the excercises after the bandages came off but I think you should wait until the wire comes off.

      Good luck and speedy recovery .👍🏻

      Sorry forgot to say foot looks great .

      The scars will fade . After the 4th week start messaging the scar with bio oil , it helps a lot.

      I got some comfy and cheap trainers from J D Williams on line. They do EE and EEE fittings . You might like to have a look on their site.

      I think they were £20 and got £5 off as new customer.😀

      Is that UK?  Not heard of them before.  I've been looking at sandpiper online.  I went to Skechers today but all their shoes, though good soles etc, are too narrow.  Thinking of getting sandals?

      Yes it is UK. I also bought a pair Sketchers with memory foam insoles. Although very comfortable , they are a bit narrow for my feet as my feet are still swollen . They will be good in a month or so . Are you in the U.S.?

      Do you have Vionic range there . I bought their sandals which are orthotic And very comfortable.

      Vionic is a brand of orthotic shoes and sandals. You can see a range of it if you go to QVC UK on line.

      J D Williams is on line as well or you can order their catalogue.

      I'm looking at JD Williams right now, much cheaper than sandpiper but look quality?  Looking at Cushion Walk Touch and Close Bar.  But. It sure which width to get.

      I am s size 5 and I got the EEE but now I find it too loose. If your feet are not wide hitting anyway I think EE should be good. Depends how swollen your feet is.
