Illness or accident?
I've finally had an operation to remove a scarred nerve from my left foot (Morton's Neuroma) - which has been driving me progressively nuts for the last 5 years.
how's the recovery?
I'll find out a lot more on Tuesday when the stitches come out. I'm not allowed to remove the dressing and splint before then - the only thing I can see is that the end of my big toe (which is nowhere near the incision/problem) is still bright purple. The shoe stops me putting any weight on the front of my foot, so it's difficult to tell how it's getting on without deliberately hurting myself without it..
Fortunately I reckon carbon Sidis will be the ultimate recovery shoe (they've been the only pain relief I've had for the last 5 years). Albeit, somewhat ironically, they probably also made the most significant contribution to causing the problem in the first place..
