I am s/p bimalleolar surgery 10 weeks- had a cast on for 7 and now a boot for 7 more. My foot is swelled and continues to swell more after I walk on it much and is still quite painful on the inside ankle side. I can not imagine wearing shoes at all and was told to bring my shoe with me at my next visit in a few weeks. I am quite certain that none of my current shoes will fit. Am wondering if anyone has advice on how much bigger the replacement shoe needs to be than the reg size. I hate to buy 2 pairs, but if I have too- I only one to do this once until my foot is more normal. I have thought about crocs but I know these are not very supportive for the feet- and the plastic seems kind of hard. Right now, I cannot stand to have anything touching my inside ankle- (nerves I guess)- even the sheets at night so you can see that I am in a quandry (as I am sure everyone is at this stage). Any advice wil be appreciated! Thanks so much,
