I am my 2nd foot surgery for a bunionectomy. The 1st one took about 4 months before things started to feel kinda normal. Being laid up for so long your foot, calf, shin, and knees are weak and just take time to strengthen up. In recovery from a dramitic foot surgery patience is your friend. This takes and time, and there is nothing you can do to change that. I can only speak for my own experience, but the it was worth the wait, the foot I had fixed last time was so bad it hurt every day all day long and now it is 95 % pain free. Hang in there it will get better.
Were you in much pain at 9 weeks post op? It still hurts alot. I am full weight bearing now, but my foot screams get off of it. I am very frightened, because not many post about the pain afterwards, and I feel like I'm not healing well. Thanks for your encouragement. How was your healing process, 2 months post op? I can bearly put much weight on my foot, for very long, without causing lasting pain. The only time I'm not in pain is when I've slept through the night and have been off of my foot for hours. I am in PT, but I'm seeing little improvement as I've read in other posts.
2 months post op I was still wearing the surgical boot at least part time. If you have a surgical boot or shoe switch back and forth. It takes time to get the strength and flexibility back in your foot. I had pain to one extent to another for a couple months after full weight bearing. It also depends on how much work they did on your foot too.
