I am 10 weeks after surgery for a bunion and a bunionette. I have screws in the bunion area and a pin at the bunionette site, which are permanent. Yes, recovery has been a breeze. I have followed my doctor's instructions to the letter.

I noticed in the last week or two I have pain on the outside of my foot, sometimes sharp pains. I work the sales floor at a very large furniture store, (I went back to work after 9 weeks), I just figured that I was overdoing it. The xrays today confirmed that the pain is coming from the pin at the site of the bunionette. My doctor says it's a very simple thing to remove it, but wants to wait 2 more weeks.

I have NO PAIN at the bunion site, even when I press on it; just tightness in my big toe sometimes, which I relieve by stretching it.

I will keep you posted. Liz
