Shoe cupboard hell.

Posted , 11 users are following.

has anyone had the problem six months after scarf op, that they can't get their foot into a court shoe , they used to fit me before! I just can't get the joint  into the shoes. It's  left me with a deeper  joint that's not that flexible.  I've just had a trying on session because of holiday coming up..... And only a few pairs fit. All my nice shoes I've thrown back into the cupboard  in disgust and anger. The hot weather does not help the foot.  Anyone else had the same problem?

      Hi Julie..... I also did my research beforehand and read up on Serrapeptase.

      Im now post bunion surgery and taking Serrapeptase 250,000 iu's three times a

      day.... My foot has reduced to it's normal size (9). Serrapeptase is a systemic

      enzyme. That is produced in a capsule form so it passes thru the stomach,(acid) then

      released in the intestines into the blood stream... Passing thru the body until it finds inflamed tissue which it digests.... Wow, I now feel hungry now myself....

      Good luck...
