Great that you are pain free. But, I'm going to butt in and tell you that you must at least talk to your doctor about staying in orthotics.
You already state that your arch is lower. I have seen cases where five years after the surgery, this new amount of pronation resulted in
forefoot changes such as Halux Valgus, Bunions, and hammertoes. I have also seen complete mid-foot collapse four years post surgery.
I'm not trying to scare anyone. This can be avoided. Your doctor can advise you better than I, of course. I'm just telling you what I have seen. Please use a little prevention and stay happy with your feet.
