Ok, I am five months post my cheilectomy procedure. Just wanted to provide an update.
I am able to go for my longer walks again. I have only worn one pair of closed shoes since the procedure...my tennis shoes. They feel fine on my feet. I am hopeful that once flip flop season is over I will be able to easily wear my regular shoes.
The scar on my toe is relatively small and not overly obvious. I'm thankful for that. Overall, I'm pleased with the progress of my toe and will continue to update with more info over the next several months.
