I just read all of your posts - they are making me feel better about my current situation.

I had bunion surgery 6 weeks ago - they cut the bone in 1/2, shift it over like an earthquake and put in 2 screws. I also had 2 of my toes straightened and shortened.

I have had a horrible recovery (or maybe I am just not dealing well). I was on crutches for 2 weeks and then was walking with a cane for 2 weeks. I am STILL in the lovely blue shoe (i actually just got a black one for nicer occasions). I am 1 week into physical therapy and I have 3 more weeks to go.

The 1st 2 weeks after surgery were HELL. I was a mess. But it has gotten better from there.

Today, 6+ weeks later, my foot is still swollen - but getting better everyday. My big toe is really stiff and pointing in... so i need to keep it splinted everyday. The physical therapy is working, but i still have a little bump where the bunion was. They say it is just scare tissue and swelling, but i am getting to the point (6 weeks later) that I don't think it will go away.

I want my big toe straight and a minimal bump - all with no pain. I think, after the hell of the surgery, I am not asking for much...

ANY ADVICE?
