... blanchable red spots on the tops of my toes. As a retired nurse I know this is a stage one decubitus. I called them and told them this is from where the boots rub on my feet. They say I must keep the boots on while walking, so I've spent most of the day off my feet. ... (4 replies)

... I had a double bunionectomy and (double) hammertoe surgery in mid May of 2006-- The hammertoes just healed along with the bunions; I had no pins or special instructions that were different from what I was told to do for the bunion surgery recovery. My stitches were dissolvable. I wore non-flexible velcro-fastened surgical sandals for two weeks; no boots, casts, crutches, etc.... (25 replies)

... He gave me a pair of surgical sandals to wear when I am at home, but still wants me in the surgical boots if I have to leave the apartment. ... (4 replies)
... As my bunions grew larger, my big toes turned in more and more-- Eventually they went so far over that they went under the next toes, making them also become deformed. If I had had bunion surgery earlier, I'd not only saved myself years of pain (not to mention putting up with ugly and hard-to-fit feet), but I'd only have had to have bunionectomies instead of those and...

... I have those velcro shoes too. I didn't get a boot, but I know other people here have. The shoes are OK, but the velcro gets stuck on everything - bandage, bedspread, other shoe, etc. My pain med is darvocet. It's what I had after my c-section, which was the 1st time I had ever heard of it. It's acetominephyne (sp?) and something else. I like it b/c it gives me NO side... (7 replies)
... op shoes that are sort of like velcro closure Burkenstocks, but the packet specifically mentions CAM boots instead. I don't know though, that could just be the default thing in the instructions. ... (7 replies)

... Congrats on your tennis playing at 4 months & also on the prospective new addition to the family. I'm also at 4 months & although I don't play tennis, I did walk quite a lot before the surgery. I'm trying to get back up to the distances I used to do, but it's difficult because I still have quite a bit of swelling. I can get my hiking boots on now with a thin sock on my... (16 replies)
... I'm really enjoying this thread because of my horrible feet bunions AND hammertoes I love looking at good feet. ... (19 replies)
... About staring at other people's feet - I do it all the time, and I used to be envious. For the longest time, I thought my feet were normal - they looked like my mother's, and doesn't everyone hate their feet? It wasn't until about ten years ago that I learned there was actually a name for my deformity, bunions. That's when the pain got excruciating, too. For yeeeears I... (19 replies)

... I found that orthotics helped me after surgery. It seems to take the pressure off of the forefoot. Apparently, a lot of folks with bunions also have flat feet; that's not the case with me. Maybe a higher arch puts a little more pressure on the front of my foot. For me, a lot depends on the shoe. I have some shoes or boots that I'll keep a little support in even now (not... (6 replies)

... I have personally never have had a bunionectomy done, but I know lots of people who have. Believe it or not, a lot of military people get it.
