I'm 7 weeks post bunion op, with osteoarthritis in hands and feet. (Oh too young!) I've been back at work for a few weeks now, wearing trainers and using a crutch cos I can't take most pain meds. My question is - do I dispense with the crutch and try work shoes again, and feel like I can't go back to trainers and crutch if needed, cos people might think I'm a fraud? Or do I wear trainers and use the crutch for a bit longer til I'm sure I don't need them? Or one or the other?
