Hi Murder 55 - I assume you mean both feet at once. It depends on the type surgery you are having done (extent of surgery) and as to how long you have to be NWB if at all and the opinion of your surgeon. I just had my second bunionectomy Oct 8th. The first was done 2 years ago. I asked my surgeon about doing both at once and because of the type I had to have done he said no because I had to be NWB for 8 weeks each time and that would have meant total wheelchair and bed. I couldn't do that so it was one at a time. Some bunion surgeries allow partial weight bearing right away so then I think it is doable.

Good luck and let us know what you decide.
