You still need to ask your dr. the exact name of the procedure, as what you described could encompass several procedures. My 2nd bunionectomy involved them doing a V cut on the distal portion of my bone...I was able to bear weight as tolerated immediately. It was a Chevron osteotomy. This time round, I am having the osteotomy in the proximal (closer) portion of the bone, and will be in a cast and NWB for 6-8 weeks...I think the actual procedure is called an open base wedge osteotomy.

Good luck
