Just thought I'd update on my situation. I'm 4 weeks and 2 days post op. I went for a check up with the consultants nurse today. She removed my pin, which I was very nervous about. I didn't feel a thing! Then she asked me if I had bought a shoe to go home in. I was amazed as I wasn't expecting that. As I hadn't got a shoe with me she gave me a flat sandal and told me I was to put all my weight on my foot and not to walk on my heel any more. I did feel a bit wobbly at first, but soon got my balance again. She advised me on footwear and told me not to overdo do it to start with.
I was also given the go ahead to drive! Been a fantastic day as I was able to drive to my parents this afternoon to see my dad who has had a hip replacement.
I am am going to have to buy some larger shoes, as all I could get into was a pair of leather ballet pumps in a bigger size.
All in all this has been a very positive experience for me. I've had no pain, just mild discomfort. I Went back to work after 2 weeks and I've managed all my own housework, cooking and laundry. I'm now planning to have my left foot done and hope the experience will be the same.
