I had this procedure plus hammertoe correction on three toes on my left foot. I also had a large bunion corrected with a fusion. Since I had other procedures also I don't think I can tell you much about the osteotomy alone. I have recovered very well, but it was a long haul with no weight bearing. Those bones are cut, screwed together and it takes a long time for bones in the foot to heal. Complete healing is absolutely necessary and my doctor kept me casted for 10'weeks. My recovery was not painful, just a pain in the neck! Ha!
Good to hear, thanks. I'm only having one toe done and will supposedly only wear a Darco boot afterward. Supposedly I can put weight on it right away though I know there will be limitations the first few weeks. I was told I can drive as soon as I'm off the pain meds, and can ride a bicycle after a couple weeks and an indoor bike even sooner.

This doesn't sound so bad, but I hope they aren't painting the picture prettier than it is.
