    You are lucky, it took me a while to recover from bilateral scarf and akin procefure.  There is no way I would have been back at work at six weeks.  It was 10 weeks before I could wear Go Walk Skechers let alone any normal footwear.  Walking was slow, really slow.

    Hope the infection has cleared up.

    Hi had done this done eight weeks ago.  I am still using one crutch and liming very very badly.  I still cannot get my foot into a trainer due to swelling.  I have started having a foot bath with Epsom Salts for the last two days and the results are really good.  Swelling down and walking improved.  Can highly recommend this.
