It's been 6 weeks post-op, your foot might not return to it's "normal" state for upwards of a year. Stop expecting it to be normal so soon after a traumatic surgery.

It's been 9 months since I've had my right foot bunionectomy and 5 months since my left and my feet are still sore. I cannot wear heels because they are too uncomfortable and my feet still aren't back to normal.

Are you working with your toe exercises? These will help increase flexibility in your foot. Are you also rubbing on your incision scar? This will help break up the scar tissue that is forming from your surgery. I recommend getting some Vitamin E oil or mederma gel and rubbing your scar 3-5 times a day. Have patience and know that in time you will be back to normal, but an expectation of being there so soon after surgery is a bit unrealistic.
Hey guys,

Im around 8 1/2 weeks post op for bilateral bunion surgery. I am not able to wear anything other than trainers which are a siz e and a half bigger than my normal shoe size. Im getting alot of pain at the ball of my feet when walking. Im not too sure if this is due to me being flat footed.

Thanks for the tip about rubbing vit e oil into scar I shall certainly try that as my scar seems to be raised

I cant emphasise enough the importance of toe/foot exercises....
