I had a post op appointment yesterday (5.5 weeks after surgery), and after the doc looked at the x-rays they took that day, she determined it was time to wear shoes again since the bone was mostly healed.

Now I can sympathize with others who say how painful it is to put on a shoe due to a stiff toe joint. I don't have a lot of range of motion anymore, which means the process of putting on the shoe and walking is painful. I think though that walking along with the PT that was prescribed to me will be helpful in remedying this situation.

So for others of you who had reduced ROM of the great toe joint post surgery, how much did you get back and how long did it take?

I decided to go shoe shopping for this occaision since I really did not have a shoe that met all my needs--the major ones being that the shoe must be both flexible and supportive. I found a great shoe that doesn't hurt to put on, and is actually kind of cute. The shoes are a red pair of Keen mary janes. I managed to squeeze my swollen foot into a normal size for me, so they have more width than a normal women's shoe. So now, I may be walking funny, but at least I have cute shoes!
