(Day 365) // 1 year mark – The End

We got here… with good and challenging moments but we got here. If you’ve been following the “Bye bye bunions” series you might have seen this post coming, if not… well…. Take some time to read through the story of my feet surgery on the 12th Nov 2020 and its progress until now here. So…Continue reading “(Day 365) // 1 year mark – The End”

Scotland 2021 – a dream trip

I considered writing several posts about this trip, it definitely deserves it. Maybe one day I will. But for now, I’m just trying to cope with my travelling blues and the fact that I’m about to leave what has become my 2nd favourite country in the entire world. In a time of Covid-19, and afterContinue reading “Scotland 2021 – a dream trip”

(Day 200) // 28th week – 6 months since surgery – I got lazy // 29th May 2021

Although the 6 month mark was a few weeks ago I’ve only just been able to take a decent picture of the feet and take some time to write about it. Overall everything is ok, and I’m doing everything I used to do before surgery… well.. more or less. In the past three months IContinue reading “(Day 200) // 28th week – 6 months since surgery – I got lazy // 29th May 2021”

(Day 103) // 14th week – the 3 month mark! Run run run // 21st February 2021

It’s now officially been 3 months, 9 days and 12 hours since my feet surgery. Omfg what a journey! After my last appointment I had to wait another three weeks to attempt running for the first time. So as soon as those three weeks were over, I went for a run. That was this Friday.Continue reading “(Day 103) // 14th week – the 3 month mark! Run run run // 21st February 2021”

(Day 80) // 11th week – Not so great news // 29th January 2021

There she went, all happy and confident, to her last podiatry appointment. Kind of thought it was actually a shame that this would be the last time I’d be able to see Dr. McCutie, but hey…. it’s a good sign because feet are definitely good (still some pain of course…. but it’s ok). Well ….Continue reading “(Day 80) // 11th week – Not so great news // 29th January 2021”

(Day 63) // 9th week – meh // 14th January 2021

I’ll start this post by saying that I’ve got no regrets whatsoever about doing the surgery and if you are in two minds about doing it… deffo go for it… … but man….. The recovery is long!! I still can’t run or do high impact exercise. Can’t go on tiptoes. My feet still don’t bendContinue reading “(Day 63) // 9th week – meh // 14th January 2021”

(Day 52) // 7th week – all the walks and adapted yoga // 3rd January 2021

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 shorterContinue reading “(Day 52) // 7th week – all the walks and adapted yoga // 3rd January 2021”

(Day 44) // 6th week – walks and soreness // 26th December 2020

Christmas has come and gone. It’s been a great time and an adventure for my feet. After my last appointment on the 18th, I grabbed my backpack and went down to the Isle of Wight to spend Christmas with my cousins (and it was a good thing I did, as London went into tier 4Continue reading “(Day 44) // 6th week – walks and soreness // 26th December 2020”

(Day 36) // 5th week appointment // 18th December 2020

So… another bitter sweet appointment today after I thought things were better than they actually are. Since my last appointment 10 days ago I’ve been really careful, elevating, massaging, mobilising and only went for 2 very short walks. The scars kept getting better and better and I think using bio-oil and massaging the scars withContinue reading “(Day 36) // 5th week appointment // 18th December 2020”

(Day 26) 4 week appointment // 8th December 2020

Today was bitter sweet. On one hand I got to do new X-rays and check how every is going but on the other hand the news were not the ones I was hoping for. I’ve been super happy because I’ve been able to walk around in the flat and I went to the park twiceContinue reading “(Day 26) 4 week appointment // 8th December 2020”
