... I hate the way they look.. but I bought a pair of crocs for my recovery. They are generally roomy so they are easy to get on and off. Wore them mostly around the house. I bought a pair of oversized sneakers when I went back to work. (12 replies)
... Hey Pearl, massaging them really helps. I used to massage my feet on the incision areas, toes and balls of my feet every 3 hours when they were ready to be massaged (2 weeks post op for me).
