I am about two and a half weeks post-op. Sutures out and first look from the doc last Thursday. All things look good, I have very little swelling and no discomfort at this point. One month till x-rays and evaluation of the fusion. Been walking without crutches for a good week now and driving (my doc is fine with this). I'm in the phase where only my own foolishness will cause trouble. I need to remain vigilant about staying on my heel for that foot and just tolerating my impatience over the next month (minimum). I wear the post-op shoe at all times except for sleeping and wear a Merell beach sandal with a hard sole on that foot in the shower. WIth our extended winter in the upper Midwest this has turned out to be a great time to do this, I may miss very little of the cycling season.
I definitely lost some toe length in the fixed toe. Prior to this my right foot measured close to a 30 shell and the left a 29, now both should more easily fit into a pair of 29's.
