Thanks for responding Kim. First I need someone to tell me what nwb means. I'm a real newbie. My doctor told me that the minimum amount of time I will be out is two weeks...so that is what I told my employer. I was hoping that would be the case since my job is at a desk and I could prop my leg up and don't require standing unless to go to the printer, bathroom, or lunchroom. I have had the bunion since adolescence but only until the last two years it has become very painful due to throwing the structure of my whole foot out-of-whack. I've had orthotics and three shots of cortisone over the past two years which helped temporarily. I'm tired of being in pain when walking and reached my limit so have planned the surgery. Just concered about the recovery and time needed. My bunion is severe and my second toe might need work too. I've planned the surgery for September as I'm a single mom and I need to get two sons off to college and my daughter settled into her senior year of H.S. Thanks for all suggestions. (Does nwb mean no weight bearing? Just a guess.)
