I rested and did everything I was recommended to do and my bandages came off 10 days ago now. I have noticed that my left toe is not as straight as I had imagined (compared to the before pictures it's amazing however) the right one is however fantastic. Should I be sleeping in a night splint as I was told it was OK to leave all bandages and support off after the surgery? I have started to use a night splint and on the left foot and have noticed an improvement in the morning but it returns to it's original position fairly quickly after I remove it. Is there anything I can do to maintain the straightness? I haven't really started to wear normal shoes yet - have mainly worn my hospital issue sandals apart from 2 occasions when I wore a pair of UGG boots. I am also still limping a lot and am very slow at walking - on other forums I have noted that people are claiming to be walking normally and back to driving fairly quickly after 6 weeks recovery. Again am I expecting too much? I still can't drive as I am unable to put my foot down on the clutch sufficiently yet. The kids are back at school next week and am not entirely sure I will manage the 10 minute walk to take them to school - I really had the impression I should be walking better by now. Thank you for any words of wisdom!
