    OK, this is probably a vain woman's question but one that I would like to know what other people think or know, maybe I should add this to the post operative page?
    I'm not talking huge stilletos,just more than flatties which I wear most of the time anyway, but I have some lovely boots with 2-3" heels I would love to wear again as not been able to for 2 years at least as to painful both during and for a few days after!
    I will take all my lovely heels and put them on e bay if the answer is NO before I even have the op so that the temptation is not there ever again. Otherwise I will try (not for a while obviously) , but at Christmas it will be a temptation. Opinions and answers would be lovely.
    A bit lighweight I know but still somethign someone may be able to help with?:scratch::what::what::what::what::what:

    :hysterical: Vikki - this topic seems to cycle around the forum about every six months. As Jo as found, lots of Smarties ask this question. The short answer is most likely.

    Once things settle and you get your strength back you will be searching your wardrope for those boots. Either that or shoe shopping! (wallet alert!)
