... Thanks Northwind, I am feeling a little better today, but similer to what I wrote last night sadly:( toes still stiff and hard to wriggle...stitch areas still reminding me every 2 minutes they are still there!! I am getting my fisrt visitors today too....I am feeling anxious about not being able to be a good host while they are here...stupid I know....must resist urge... (40 replies)
... Put your feet up and relax. Hopefully this was just a reminder to take it easy and that it will pass quickly. How are you feeling now? I am planning to go to church this morning. That will be two hours out of the house probably. I will be able to put my foot up on the pew without problems, so should be good. Failing that, I will have the rest of the day to elevate and...

... hmmm DIDN'T think I would get away with it today.....both big toes throbbing and have a numb but painfully numb feel. All toes feel hard to wriggle...the opposite side of my foot (to the stitches) is aching!!! hope I haven't sent all my progress back to square one;-( (40 replies)

... Hi all, Just wanted to say I spent 2.5 hours sitting in a cafe today, and walked around the house on and off without crutches......now (a few hours later) I don't feel too bad!!! I must say I have pain in my feet where I was putting pressure on the other side to compensate for the other side where all the stitchers are.. but other then that...not too bad at all ;-) I am...

... Oooooooo.....I would so love to soak my foot! I miss that already. I get my stitches out on Nov 9th. (40 replies)
... I miss that thread too......I posted a question about why they do not allow group threads. I have not had an answer. I guess we have to be careful not to make this a group thread. How are your feet? (40 replies)
... I couldnt wait to get my bandages off also at the 14 day. I also had a half cast and after my first visit post op they put this back and wrapped bandages around tightly. These bandages i could not take of for another 4 weeks. And boy when they came of my skin was just shredding. At least you get nice soft skin again on your feet and since i have been really looking after them... (40 replies)
... I'm happy to say that on day 11 they pain is FINALLY reducing, and I am feeling so much better about what I have done!!! I have left the house once in those 11 days, and it was a trip around my parent's farm in a wheelchair (about 30min in total)...so I am starting to think about other outings I could possibly be able to do!! It's all looking up!!! (40 replies)
... hey, thanks so much for your reply Sumerluvr :p I had to start a new thread.....I was enjoying the banter between us all on the last one:( well I DO appreciate your info!! I know it is different, but all the same the one theme I keep hearing is don't overdo it...I have been feeling a bit better the last few days and as a result have done a few more things on my own..but...

... hmm... I have had two different procedures that what you had and did one foot at a time, so I can't say for sure, but I am 15 days post op from chevron bunion correction on right foot and am going back to work on Monday. I am walking "ok" in the boot, not too much swelling, minimal pain. I use one crutch to help get around but am walking fully on the foot (in the boot) ... (40 replies)
... wow, what's a girl to write, to get a reply??:confused: (40 replies)
... Hi, again, I should have said before that this is my 9th day post-op and although I feel I am now doing ok (after some painful periods) I was just trying to get a clear idea of when I can expect to do things again.... any of your experiences would be greatly appcreciated!!! (40 replies)
... Hi everyone,:wave: just wondered if those who have had this precedure could let me know (even just roughly)..... - how long they were off work (I have an office job) - how long it took to get into a 'normal' shoe -how long before they stopped elevating for the majority of the day - how long before they were really active again ie gym/running thank you!!!!! :angel: (40 replies)
... Back to work in a week? I suppose you could do it, but it may not be pleasant. I had a chevron plus a bunionette bunionectomy with pins. My second week I walked too much and had to go NWB for five days. You mentioned bunions. Would you have bilateral (both feet) done? That would definitely compound your recovery. I would recommend you continue your research and read... (6 replies)
... Hi Emma I hope that you can get over your fear of general anesthesia. I've had five surgeries on my right ankle after I broke it in three places and received general anesthesia each time. The last thing I can remember was lying there in the holding room waiting to go into surgery. Each time they said they were giving me something in my IV to help me relax and I was out till...

... urking on this forum for research, inspiration and hope I've decided to introduce myself and let you know my foot sorrows. I'm Emma, 22, and I suffer from severe bunions and hammertoes on both feet. But on November 30th I will finally do something about it! ... (21 replies)
... I had a bilateral bunionectomy last year. ... (6 replies)
... If your doctor will allow it, having a bilateral bunionectomy would mean that you would only need to arrange this support one time. Any chance your husband can take some vacation or Family Leave time? ... (17 replies)
... saying, in my time, we didn't do that! You know, I can even recall what I have done since I was 16, cos it's flown by so fast, but one thing I know is those damn bunions have been with me all this time and have made me miserable! ... (17 replies)
... eight weeks. I never used crutches, just sort of looked like a robot, walking slowly stiffly. So, don't assume that you definitely won't be able to walk after a bilateral bunionectomy. ... (11 replies)
