    Patricia I would give it another 2 months, healing process takes alot longer then they tell you, how are your toes range of motion?? If that is good, it should take another month or 2, good luck,

    I had both my feet done 8 weeks ago.  I bought 2x wide shoes and a half size bigeer that really helped.

    Wow I'm at 9 weeks had same surgery. I put on tennis always have worn wide. But my last pair of tennis are 2x. I had trouble getting them on. But my foot had plenty of room no pain once I got them on. But my foot swelled up big time. How your swelling? Try some super wide shoes. Hope you feel better soon.

    i had the same surgery 4 months ago and my scars are also so so tender.

    i have just bought a pair of Nike trainers but the top of them is made of stretch fabric and there are no seams if you know what I mean.

    they cost £45:00 and they are incredibly comfortable.

    Hope that helps.
