... I had this surgery done on Jan. 24, I was amazed at how much improvement there was in one week, even more comfortable in two and gradual improvement since then. ... (19 replies)
... I saw my PT today. He was reassuring. He said to not rush things, and he also emphasized the importance of massaging the foot and the incision site. I'll post later, about my exercises. Thanks Dark Light... Hope all goes well, with your 2nd surgery. (240 replies)

... Hi wmkkcolors, I am glad to have helped you; I hope I can continue to do so. :) At present, I am 3 months and one week post-op and I am doing very well, of course, my toe is still stiff and I can feel it when I walk.

... Your type of quietness is a blessing in disguise; things are going well for you and I am very happy to hear that the bone stimulator is working. You will find that once you ankle recovers from it's stiffness and aches, your energy will increase. I noticed my ankle improving when I returned to work because it was getting exercise. It’s a ten minute walk from the station and... (240 replies)
... Thank you dbgoalie! I am surprised with how fast I have recovered, it's more noticeable since week seven when I returned to work adn started walking regularly. I have been pushing myself and I have been doing a lot of foot/toe/ankle and leg exercises. My left leg is still skinnier than the other. My ankle feels so much better, but I am still doing the twists! Yesterday... (240 replies)
... ch as leaning my arms on the wall in front of me with my bad foot behind and the good foot in front, you can really feel the stretching.

... In regards to my toe angling, my bunions weren't bad prior to the surgery but they were painful. My toe angles a little but not too much, I don't mind if it's like that, as long as it's not a sign of it returning! ... (240 replies)

... s wide as well. His helps a great deal because I can go out and walk. I am too a bit surprised at seven weeks, but I had to do a lot of vigorous toe exercises for this to happen and it only took one and half days! I have to say my foot and toe was aching in the evening! ... (240 replies)
... Good for you getting a shoe on your foot, that is real progress you are making, only a few months removed from surgery. I am very happy for you. I think 3 or 4 times a day with the toe stretches/exercises will suffice. While you are at work, see if you can't sneak off somewhere for just 10 minutes and do it. Or, while you are sitting, do like they recommend when you are... (240 replies)
... when you mentioned that we aren't apes needing to swing on branches! Well I certainly don't plan on using my feet to swing on anything! I have been doing my toe exercises as often as I can and I find doing them after a bath helps me pull the toe further. ... (240 replies)
