... I only know one person personally who had both done at one time. He could walk but it was very slow going. I'm surprised they are saying you will be NwB for two weeks as it is normal to walk from day one with this procedure. Are they doing other things beyond a simple cheilectomy (cleaning out of spurs and chips?). I had one with an osteotomy to remove the bump on top the... (18 replies)

I think the nerves are still confused as to what happened, LOL. I've been doing the exercises-they seem to help the stiffness. My Doctor said there was no cartilage on one side so she told me to make sure... (9 replies)

... During the day it loosens up and I can walk quite well for extended periods. Feels best after exercises but the mobility never lasts. Sometimes the whole forefoot cramps up. My PT told me that my high arches and generally rigid bone structure is probably to blame. ... (5 replies)
