Week 12 Left Foot Update- Improvement in Function AND Appearance!

Wow, it's been 12 weeks since I went under the knife to correct my bunions and hammertoes on my left foot. In that time, my bunion has been corrected and removed. My big toe is nice and straight, but still has some loss of feeling and I'm hoping the nerves repair over time and I get 100% feeling in that toe. My pinky toe hammertoe still has a corn on it, but it's the pinky toe, which gets the most pressure from sneakers and shoes, so I'm not sure if it'll ever be a corn-less toe. My second and third toe hammertoes look 100000% better!!! The corns have become smaller, no hard skin covers them and they are truly going away...thank goodness!
I am comfortably wearing sneakers and flats and a dress boot with a shaft and 1 1/2 in heel (very short) to work. I am not in heels yet, primarily because my right foot has only been recovered for 8 weeks and I do not want to push it by stuffing my feet in heels. I'll wait until summer and then BOOM! POW! I'll be strutting my stuff in 4-5 inch
Overall, I am satisfied with the work done on my left foot and with the healing process thus far. The comfort that I feel in my sneakers is a huge deal, because prior to surgery my bunion nor the hammertoes would allow me to comfortably wear sneakers.

Scroll back and compare my left foot at Week 5 and my left foot today at Week 5, it is a vast improvement in appearance.
