Etterus, so glad from your SoCal friends that the procedures went well. My procedures all done in same 9 hour surgery so did not have to go back for second shot like you did. Fully understand how you feel about the foot dystonia. It was remarkable that 5 years later I am still using power tools. I tire more easily now, but as people age that is often the case. I have tried to pace myself with rest breaks and find my strength comes back within 20 minutes. Hope it goes that well for you. When I was at the stage you are I briefly used a 4 wheeled walker until I felt my balance was established. Then I switched to a cane and often need neither now. Slow, slow, slow. And have a good holiday.
