Hi my name is Lisa, I'm 34 and having bunion surgery Wed. They are performing a bunionectomy also doing the osteotomy where my big toe is repositioned w/screws. It sounds like there will be a small incision where a tendon will be cut and a larger one on medial part of my left foot where they cut into the bone to insert screws. I will have a nerve block when I leave but am wondering what kind of pain to expect. I have never even had a stitch, much less broken a bone. Is is going to throb, burn, all of the above? I have pain meds and am wondering how soon to start taking them. I don't want to feel much of anything. I'm expecting the worst and after reading some of these posts it isn't a very pleasant experience!

I have crutches for 4 weeks and was told I may not even need a walking boot but just the small velcro shoe. My mom is flying in to take care of me for a few days after :angel:

Any advise or information from people that have done it would be great!! Thanks - Lisa
