So here we are… the year is 2021 and yes, we’re still in the middle of a pandemic.
Now that’s out of the way, my feet are feeling great! It’s incredible how much improvement I can notice every day.
Since coming back to London I’ve been for walks almost every day. I started with shorter walks but for the past two days I’ve walked between 40min-1hr and my feet (although a bit swollen) feel good.
The worse time of the day is definitely after I shower. This is when they get fairly purple and more swollen.
I’ve also started to do a bit of yoga, and that’s a bit more complicated. My feet are not nearly as flexible as they used to be (yet!!!), so I’ve had to adapt a lot of exercises, but we’re getting there.
I can’t wait to be able to start doing a bit of running!! (And here’s something I never thought I’d say).
I sometimes find myself thinking if the surgery was worth it since my feet still look like they have bunions and then I remind myself of the pain I used to be in constantly and I realise that aesthetics mean nothing! It really is about how they feel.
However… I did look at the two pictures I took before the surgery and two today…. and you can definitely see the difference!!
