Hi ready to run . . .
I had "closing base wedge osteotomy with McBride bunionectomy" on both of my feet last year. You can find my previous posts by searching the healthboards for my posting name --> cyclist

There is one detailed posting that I posted with the subject --> "No Pain. Procedure: closing base wedge osteotomy with McBride bunionectomy"

I don't know if what I had done to both of my feet matches what you are having done (bones cut in two places, screws, re-alignment, etc.), but I learned that podiatrists and surgeons often disagree about what needs to be done and how to do it. They also disagree on how to recover from the surgeries. My two surgeries were done by a Board-Certified podiatrist, with 35 yrs experience. He was referred to me by several patients.

I wore a non-weight bearing cast on my feet for a total of 5 months last year! But it was worth it, and I'm 95% recovered. I'm in training for two adventure vacations in May (walking / cycling) ... and I just can't wait. It's the reason I did the surgeries. Good luck!
