So today was the final trip to Darent and I saw the extensive surgery which has corrected my left foot. I now have 2 matching and pain free feet. The degree of deformity was 29 now its the normal 7, wow ! I can go shoe shopping and I really need new boots.

Honestly if you can get this done its made my foot normal and it was not painful just a bit throbby for a while. I can say that the hospital was super, the surgeon so friendly and the appointments were kept too. I simply can't praise them enough and look forward to a few rambles in January I've been advised to start slowly and it just shows that the NHS really can do things well and make a diseases impact really minimal. I'm so happy !!!! xx
