    Hi,

    I just wanted to make a note to let everyone know that you can wear high heels again once you are recovered!

    I'm only 27 and prior to surgery I was only wearing flats and supportive shoes. I am now 5 months out from surgery and have been wearing heels pretty much every day to work.

    YAY!!!!!!!

    Just wanted to share this news and let you know what you can look forward to :)

    Melissa

    Hi Melissa and all, Wearing whatever shoes you want is one of the best benefits of HR. Before HR, I found that shoes too flat or too high were painful. Had to pick from very limited selection. Now I can wear any shoes that I want. This summer I danced the night away at a shore club to The Nerds (one of them is a good friend)--Melissa and Jane you know who they are--and except for being normally tired for a boomer after 1 a.m., I was good to go. How different a year ago.
