Cheilectomy Post Op: Patient Shares Post Op Course

    Comment Posted January-22-2014

      I am 2 weeks post opt rom having a cheilectomy done on left foot. I am pretty pleased with how it is going and am in a soft shoe most of the time. 13 staples taken out 3 days ago and this seems to be quite sensitive where these were taken out and healing is slow. Hoping in 2 weeks I have greatly improved by then. Less is more for this type of problem and my doctor feels a fusion is last option to consider.

 I'm 49 year old female very active and a runner so will keep you posted on my recovery. My hallux rigidus was quite bad and it was time to do something about it. Good luck everyone and if I can be of any help let me know.

Dr Blake's comment: This kind patient is post cheilectomy for Hallux Rigidus. She has agreed to respond to comments or questions. I am very appreciative.
