hi,
i had a double bunionectomy about 3 months ago....my bunions were moderate too and they weren't too painful until about a year ago and i couldn't really wear any shoes (no matter how "comfortable") comfortably. i've been healing pretty well i think...i also had hammertoes done so some of the toes are still painful... but i guess the key to a (somewhat) smooth recovery is to prepare well and to kind of prepare for the worst. it'll probably help you to read through the posts here...a lot of people experience the same things..i know this site has really helped me along the way. i think the worst thing about this (and i think a lot of people will agree) is that the recovery time takes just so long. even though your doctor said 6 wks to 6 months, think 6 months definitely. every week there's a little improvement, but not enough for it to feel like a real accomplishment. maybe at about 4-5 months recovery will go faster. but it just takes a lot of patience. hope all goes well! check back with us often :)
