Hi there. I'm scheduled for surgery to correct severe hallux valgus on both feet in 6 weeks time. I am not sure of the specific surgery, as my surgeon calls it a 'Barouk Osteotomy' and google search results in nothing of use. I believe though they break the bones and put in temporary screws and (maybe permanent) plates.

Anyway, I have the added complication of having hypermobility syndrome. I know that my recovery could be a little different and slower due to this, and I wanted to know if anyone else on here who has had bunion surgery has also been hypermobile and what their experiences were, as it is really hard to find information about it and as I'm going through the NZ public system it is even harder to get information out of the hospital! I am considering going to Japan for a year on the JET programme you see, and I would have to leave 5 months after my operation, but I wouldn't want to accept going if it is wishful thinking that I will be healed enough.

I would greatly appreciate hearing peoples experiences, even if you aren't hypermobile it would be great to know how long it took to fully recover.
