Hi Lub -

I also had bunion and bunionette surgery on my right foot, as well as a hammertoe fixed and tendons loosened on the other 2 toes to straighten them. In short, I had all 5 toes worked on. Surgery was on 3/17. I have to say, I have only had pain for 3 days, numbness for about 5 days afterwards, was walking a bit in a boot 10 days later, and now, about 2.5 weeks later, back at work and walking pretty comfy in the boot (w/o any adverse effects when I get back home, like swelling or pain). I think it all depends on age, health, severity of the deformities and most of all, the surgical technique (I had the Chevron osteotomy on the bunions). My issues were mild, so I'm sure that helped me get back on my feet quicker. I am not 100% though, foot still swollen a tad.

Also, during the first 2 weeks, I did very little walking and lots of icing, which I think helped.

Wishing you a speedy recovery!:wave:
