It has now been two weeks since my op. Today the consultant removed my plaster casts and replaced them with lighter ones and splints between my toes. I am now down to a few Paracetamol only. Hardly any swelling, but I have been keeping my feet up a lot the last two weeks. Still wearing the special shoes and using crutches, but very pleased with result so far. Fingers crossed, the healing continues!

      thanks, you too! I am trying not to get too cocky and start doing too much. My feet already look smaller with the bandages as the casts are thinner, and I can now do up the velcro straps on the shoes properly. I have another 4 weeks of casts, and then I need some comfy trainers, any recommendations! Speedy recovery to you too!

    Keep your feet raised all the time you are sitting down.  I'm week four and still doing this.  But at least I can now walk on a wide based sandal.  Bought some Teva strappy shoes which are for walking, active range.  Soooo comfortable.  These help me keep my balance, tried my own shoes and found my foot collapsing.  Your feet look good.

      wow, fantastic that you can now walk! You have answered my question regarding shoes, although I still have plaster casts for another 4 weeks. Can you bend your toes? I'm meant to wiggle mine several times a day, but this is quite restrictive due to the plaster casts. I am also keeping my feet up as much as I can, and it is paying off, I think. Hope you continue to recover!
