Hi Danny -

I thought that I would NEVER find another with the concern of wearing high heels again! ;-) I am 39 and have had Pain in great toe joint for 10 years - JUST found out that it is due to arthritis caused by a raised first metatarsal bone. I need a Lapidus procedure to lower the first metatarsal.
I am hoping that you can tell me about your recovery, how it was, how long you were non weight bearing, how long until you were in a real shoe and if you can wear high heels again! I SO miss all of my beautiful shoes - I can hardly wear a 2 inch heal with out pain now. I am scheduling surgery for this Sept. After our summer travel - I have a 3 and 5 year old and am so not looking forward to this but I am looking forward to my shoes again. I AM only doing this in hopes that I can regain flexibility in my big toe - Have you regained that?
THank you so much for any insight or advice!
