Having Fun after Sesamoid Surgery!!!

This is a young lady whom I helped online in an attempt to avoid surgery. It is crucial of course now that there is only one sesamoid left to wear some form of dancer's padding while she is participating in impact sports forever. So simple, but often forgotten. 

Hey!!  Yes sir, the surgery is finished (I had it on 
April 16th) and I am already back to everything.  I ran 4 miles this past Friday and I'm playing tennis later today... and I was able to wear some high heels for my birthday dinner yesterday :)  I am a very, very happy camper.  

The podiatrist said that the sesamoid wasn't necessarily fractured when he took it out, but he said that the cartilage all around it was worn down, and that everything was very inflamed.  It was the right call to do the surgery.  

I'm so thankful to have a new lease on life :)  It's the best feeling ever!  God bless you and your help throughout this long process.  It is people like you who make the world a better place, and you give people hope.  Thank you for being you.  

My best,
