I am getting depressed from reading some of your posts about how long it is taking to "fully" recovered. I had surgery on Nov. 15, 2006 which last week I can finally not "use" my crutches when I wake up first thing in the morning. When I get up I walk as if I am 100 years old and I am only 56. But as the hours goes by, my foot feels better except for the swelling in my right big toe. My right foot is about 1/2" bigger than the left so I have a problem getting my foot in a tennis shoe. Just bought new shoes (bigger) but breaking them in-ouch! They fit the day before when I bought them. I am down at the fact my big toe is still swollen. Do any of you have night pains? I sleep with my foot elevated but my god the pulsing foot pains that flows into my toes. Sometimes it feels like fire coming out of my toenails. They don't last too long kinda comes and goes. Had to get up this morning at 2 am to take a BC powder which helped quickly. It will be 8 weeks on Jan 15th and I thought I would be in better shape after the dr said maybe 4-6 weeks. I need to get back to work but standing on my foot on concrete surface in a greenhouse is questionable. Maybe 4-5 hours would be ok. Thanks for "listening" needed to vent. Cathy
