Last year, I had major knee surgery. I had two arthroscopies, a bone graft and stem cell transplantation (cells were taken from my hip and transplanted into my knee in order to grow new cartilage). Almost nine months after my last operation, things are looking good. My cartilage has started to grow back, my once limp-noodle leg is strong and I can walk. In heels. Hooray!
I’m quite tall so I don’t wear heels for the height. I wear them because I love them. Not being allowed to wear heels for over a year has been a struggle. Not life-threatening I realise, but I’ve missed them. I’ve lived in trainers and biker boots so I’m very happy that I’m allowed to totter again. Now, going from flats to really big heels after a year-long hiatus is bonkers. But mid heels isn’t. And these ankle-tie heeled sandals from H&M are just the pair to welcome me home.
