Going for foot impressions for new arch supports...

Friday, August 16, 2013

My feet hurt so much I broke down and put the old ones in as I was limping and feeling somewhat terrible in general. It helped but it will be nice to have properly fitting inserts again. As soon as this is taken care of I am going to attempt to get my old compression stockings on and if they are too tight I will need to be remeasured and hopefully will not have to go back to wrapping my legs to get the swelling down. I had stopped using the compression hose due to 2 hand surgeries and then an abdominal hernia repair, then 3 separate toe nail removals and finally the recent broken wrist bone (put in cast for 6 weeks). Anyone who has ever put on these devices (compression hose) knows you need strong hands to put them on. I recall how much better my legs and feet felt when I wore these and I am anxious to start again, even though they are a nuisance to put on. Maybe
some day a new kind of compression hose can be invented that isn't so difficult to put on

    Take care of your feet, and they'll take care of you. emoticon
    That's a great point about the compression hose, Someone should invent some that you can just easily put on, and once they're on, you could push a button, and they could 'compress' right on you.

    Well fitting inserts really help. I have flat feet and I had to wear them when I was a kid, before good footwear was available. They were made of leather and got to smelling pretty bad, but oh they were so worth it. As they say, when your feet hurt you hurt all over.
