Mtp joint fusion - walking normally again

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi all

I am 3 weeks post op from MTP joint fusion and obviously it all feels very weird and sore and numb still all at the same time . I wondered how long it was before you guys felt able to walk pretty normally again. Particularly through all the foot.

Many thanks

    Hi both

    Many thanks for your replies. Unfortunately I do not do Facebook, this was the reason for coming on here to see what other people's recoveries were. I am still very much elevating my foot and not doing much as want it to do its job and knit properly.

    Thanks again 👍

    .I was seven weeks in a walking boot, and on week 4 of walking. I suddenly became aware yesterday that I was walking more or less normally.

    I have busy days when my foot really swells up, but I try to have easy days too. I teach and I'm going back on phased return next week.
