    Oh Gillee nooooo I feel your pain. Hurry up and get better soon. Hot & cold therapy might help the swelling.

      Oh dear! I think once my hard cast is removed I should wrap myself in bubble wrap each day. I'm such a klutz already. Did it heal well after the break?

      Hey Sue,  how are you doing? How was the Achilles op, hope all went really well for you and you're doing ok?  Did you decide re your surgeon  for your revision? Such bad luck  for you and Gillee too.  So easy to do though and  I've joined the clumsy club  since having my feet done...stubbed toe on the bed..twice...dropped the corner of the vacuum cleaner  on my foot last week (no shoes) and dropped a big full bottle of shampoo on my toe 'cos I was busy concentrating on getting into the shower without slipping......biggrin !!!!!

      Geez that's a lot of surgery. I had ankle surgery last year. Just when I was able to run well again, it was time for my first of hopefully only two bunionectomies. I have my left bunionectomy scheduled in November. It never ends.

    You know what Gilliee this is what they do to you if you are limping.  I had to have an anaesthetic to have done what you have done.  It may very well do you a favour as daft as it sounds.   The only thing is that despite a swollen very painful toe they told me they didn't want me to rest after this op of aggressive manipulation but aggressive exercise.   I would say the same to you.  At 5 months you need as much exercise for your toe as possible and as painful as it is and as swollen as it is, at the stage you are at, you don,t want to be resting it up too much only at night but exercise is more important.  Hope I don't sound like a school mark but It worries me that you could be doing the wrong thing.

      hi rosie xx thank you for your kind reply, to be honest with you rosie i have been walking quite a lot only very slow but i try to get out most days and if i am at home i potter around the house quite a lot, i do massage the toes but the nerve endings are still very sensitive i only do it for a short while, i only really rest up in the evening when they seem to feel hot and stingy, i take on board all the advice i get on here as we are the people who have experienced the op and recovery so no you do not sound like a school mark lol.... just a bit of a set back but i am in positive mind so i just keep saying i am over the worse lol thanks rosie, you keep strong and positive and with this wonderful site and lovely people on here we will get there xx
