so i've started the process of getting my feet done. I went to my doctor, he said that he isn't allowed to refer me until we have shown we have don all we can to manage them for 6 months. He apologised for having to do this but said its their guidelines and referred me to a podiatrist. This morning I saw her and she was lovely. She sighed and said she was sorry they had sent me to her, that yes i have very bad bunions which need surgery and (as i knew already) she can do nothing but write to my doctor recommending surgery.
Ive had two incidents of pressure sores on one of them, about the size of a 10p piece - making it extremely painful and difficult to manage because its hard enough finding shoes wide enough but adding dressings to the equation makes it even worse. My podiatrist said its not always the width of the shoe thats the problem but the depth of it too.
my question to you all is please could you let me know which brands of shoe you have tried, can you recommend any that for me to look at trying whilst I wait half a year before my doctor is allowed to refer me?!! I'm a young 45 - I don't wear heels but would like to have some preferably that don't look like I'm drawing my pension prematurely.. I've tried a lot of wide shoes but they are sometimes too wide around the heel and like the podiatrist said, not deep enough at the toes.
Thank you in advance!
