So I'm going to have a big toe fusion soon, possibly in a month so Oct. The issue is both of my toes are hammered and not flexible at all and I have flat feet. The doctor never said which tie will be done first or both done at the same time.
The major issue is I'm only 16, 17 in December (I have stopped growing) and starting A-Levels on the 9th Sept. This may cause a big issue as I don't know when I will be able to go back to school, so any advice or help would be great.
Unfortunately, I cannot get out of this surgery as I also have flat feet. Because of my toe I have to wear a bigger size show which causes issues for my flat feet as they then spread out completely. Because of this I'm getting issues with my knees and hips. I have to have my toes done so that I can have insoles, as they wont fit them with my toes like that.
Any information on when I can get back to school, recovery time etc. Would be appreciated. I also ride horses and if I move my stirrup to under the arch of my foot my toe will not bear weight at all, so would anyone have an idea to when I can get back to riding, I can't give it up as I compete nationally and it's just not an option.
