Thank you for posting an update after two years! It gives me hope. I'm 7 weeks post-op after having bunion surgery on both feet. I had the scarf osteotomy with small permanent screws placed in both feet. I finally replaced the post-op boot with Birkenstocks and running shoes a week ago. The hardest part was not being able to drive for 6 weeks. The swelling is still horrendous, so I had to go out and buy men's size 10w running shoes! I'm usually a women's 10 :) My surgeon warned me about the swelling, but I guess I thought everything would be perfect by the 6 week point. Not so! But that's the time frame that everybody throws around.
Because of the swelling, I'm also having a hard time bending my toes. I'm working at it, but it can be painful. And like you, my toes don't touch the floor when I stand up. I feel like I'm walking on a big balloon.

It's so nice to know that this will all be behind me eventually. Did you go back to your regular sized shoe, and if so, how long did it take?

Thanks again,
