I am very grateful to live such a privileged life. I was super lucky to have been able to afford Dr Wu's surgery and super lucky to have the luxury of time to recuperate and convalesce.

My experience with Dr Daniel Wu himself, has been nothing but a pleasure. His bedside manner is excellent. From the moment I met with him in his surgery, his caring and regard for the condition of my feet made me feel confident that he was the one to care for me. He has never waivered in his care. How many surgeons do you know that personally 'dress' your wounds after surgery? He even personally made my casts. And has personally replied to my emails.
I would be horrified if I thought that a surgeon of this high calibre was inhibited in anyway from performing this wonderful surgery. And I would be horrified to think that I and others who suffer from the pain and disability of bunions would be denied this amazing option.
Having said that, I do have a few issues. I was not prepared for the time it took to recover. I was in foot casts for 3 months, then it really took another 3 months to get myself walking properly. This last 3 months has also been getting the body used to the new feet. I keep putting my hips & back out, at times the bones in my feet seem to freeze up and my wonderful chiropractor, Kevin Carlson http://www.gentlechiro.com.au/ has managed to get everything going again.

|Loved these guys, farmers I think, they came out of the surf and lit up a 'roll your own'!|
There have been a few little things, but in the big picture I would do it all over again.
Thank you Dr Wu, you have changed my life for the better. Cath
Ps readers.... don't forget to do the exercises he gives you!
