On the 7th day after surgery I returned to Australia wearing moon shoes/boots on both feet and had minimal pain. I was walking without crutches. I returned to America five weeks later to have the pins removed from my feet. I could not believe how quickly my toes became realigned and I had hardly any pain. I returned to Australia after 5 days and wore the moon shoes/boots for a further 7 days but I was also walking between 10-15 minutes each day without the shoes. I had no pain whatsoever and only 3-4 very small scars on each foot.

After 7 days I started wearing my runners. Again no pain. It has now been 12 weeks since my surgery and I am back training at the gym, jogging and jumping. I am wearing normal shoes and have today purchased my first pair of high heels – not too high but a small heel. I am so excited to be able to wear heels. I cannot believe how "straight" my feet are - I am totally thrilled with the end result and my very small scars are disappearing.

Although travelling from Australia to the USA to have this surgery was extreme and the cost quite high, I believe in the long term it was well worth it. Dr. K is truly a professional in every aspect of the word. His bedside manner towards me and my mum who accompanied me on both occasions was outstanding. Dr.K's staff of Pamela, Elisabeth and Brittney were fantastic. Both friendly and helpful but also professional at the same time.

Thank you Dr. K I never ever thought I would have the beautiful feet that I have today and I cannot thank you enough."
