Hi, everyone! I had a complicated bunion surgery with several procedures performed. I am now about 12 days post op and on crutches (still). I have two screws in my foot that are to be removed in a second surgery in 8 weeks or so. I am in a "soft cast", however, I'm not sure how long my dr. will keep my foot in it. I also wear an osteo boot over the cast.

Can anyone drop a line about how long it took them to recover?

When did you notice a turning point? i.e. at week 3? 4?

How long before you could walk without using your crutches?

How long before you could do things like go for a walk (without any crutches, boot, etc.)?

I met someone who had a different surgery about 8 weeks ago and she is now in tennis shoes and walking without any aids. (She was on crutches for the first two weeks.) So that was encouraging to see.

Thanks for your replies!
