It’s been 18 months since my last major surgery & 8 months since the minor toe fix. I thought it would be a good time to update with some new pictures so you can see how the scars have healed and faded.
I’m very pleased with the outcome overall. My feet feel a lot better than they ever have and shoes actually fit correctly now. I seem to have no issues with walking for extended periods of time now…I even completed “Race for the Cure” yesterday (walking, not running of course) with no problems. I don’t have any issues with pain in my heels anymore. That was the part that took the longest to heal. The only issue I’ve found is with walking down multiple flights of stairs. I occasionally walk the concrete fire stairs at work for exercise and I can only go down 6 flights at a time before beginning to experience some pain in my arches. If that’s the only downside, I can handle it. The positives far outweigh the negatives.
The scars have faded considerably and I can easily wear sandals which I could never do prior to my surgeries due to the deformities in my feet. It’s so nice to be able to wear sandals in the summertime again!
