Wow it has been a week since I had surgery. Hard to believe. I am still keeping my foot up and not using ice now.
It isn't swollen any so far. Stitches out next week. Yippi.
The stitches aren't bothering me any so far.That is surprised me but my big toe hurts some still and the pin hurts where it is.
Xrays looked good so far. Foot wasn't black or blue.
My husband keeps saying I shouldnt need pain pills but I do. I am taking one every three hrs. I think he thinks I am a baby. I had a child without any pain meds and I just wish People understood more how Bunion surgery really is.
Did anyone else need pain meds the second week. Thanks, Polly

I had to stop taking my pain pills three days after surgery as they made me SICK! I am able to tolerate the pain, but there are times where I can "feel" the incision. Really uncomfortable. If I could have, I think I would still be taking the pain pills. I keep my foot up also with out the ice. My stitches also come out next week...WooHoo!

Hi Polly! I am glad to hear that you seem to be doing well. After my first surgery, I stopped taking the pain pills after the first 3 days becuase they made me sick. I didn't have a pin put in my big toe though, so maybe it didn't hurt as much. I have my re-do surgery next week, and I am a little nervous about the whole pin issue! Does the pin really hurt?
