... go away and I had to do a lot of PT work at home curling my toes to get the movement back, but I did. I'd just keep at it every day, as much as I could and the buionectomy and the toe are pain free. ... (9 replies)
... Hi Dancergal19, I saw a post you wrote back in 2007 when you had your first bunionectomy done and since I'm encountering a similar situation as yours back then I was wondering if you had any advice or knowledge regarding my bunionectomy. I had a left buionectomy and 2nd metatarsal break (alignment) on dec. 11th, 2009. My big toe still veers to the left and pushing my... (5 replies)
... I had my second Lapidus buionectomy done on 10/8. I think I forgot about the pain I had the first time (2 years ago) although it's better today and I haven't actually taken any pain meds. Of course the swelling is there and I have to go put ice on it again now. I had a splint put on after surgery (half cast up the back of my leg) which I also had last time. I'm to be NWB...

Bunions x2?
Aug 25, 2007
... op from radical buionectomy and Mortons Neuroma removed. You won't be able to put weight on your feet at all. ... (10 replies)
... hi monster bunion, i think i had a very similar if not the same procedure as you (i had a severe bunion on my right foot and had a buionectomy and osteotomy of my 1st metarsal and hammertoe correction on my second toe in April). I was nwb for 6 weeks also. I was very nervous and also very excited about walking (because i couldn't stand being on crutches any longer). But... (16 replies)
... I'm so glad you decided to join. I had a Lapidus buionectomy with shortening of the second toe back in October and I hate to say this but I still occasionally get some residual swelling. ... (4 replies)
... Hi all - I haven't been around in a while but I just wanted to update everyone including some of the newbies. I had a Lapidus buionectomy Oct 18, 2006 (8 months ago). I'm 58 years old and I think evey active. In the Lapidus procedure the metatarsul was cut, part of the joint taken out and then fused. I was in a "boot" and nonweightbearing for 8 weeks (seemed like an... (7 replies)
... Hi Katie - that's wonderful. I know the beginnings of walking again do feel wierd. It will get better quickly. Just don't overdo. The peeling skin is also disgusting but I can tell you I'm 6 months post-op Lapidus buionectomy and after the peeling the bottom of my foot has stayed so smooth - no more calluses. It feels great. I do have some slight swelling but nothing... (3 replies)
... Hi all - went to the DPM today. I'm 4 1/2 months post-op Lapidus buionectomy. He said he doesn't want to see me for 3 months and I'm free to do what I want (yeah). He was very happy to be able to see the veins in my foot - said that means the swelling has subsided. I told him that the exercises PT gave me included heel raises (basically standing over a step and standing up... (6 replies)
... I had a double bunionectomy in May of 2006. My experience was chronicled on this board, mainly on two threads titled Double Buionectomy Questions. Many others also related their experiences and advice in those threads. I would encourage you to use the SEARCH on HealthBoards. ... (2 replies)
... Gee myjo I'm sorry to hear you are having such pain 5 months after surgery. I had a Lapidus buionectomy with second toe shortened 11 weeks ago and I feel great. No pain at all. I also had the 1st metatarsul fused but at the joint closest to my ankle. ... (13 replies)
... well I had my 6 week check today for buionectomy with bone fusion. ... (10 replies)
... Hi Cactusflower - wow you are brave to have bilateral bunionectomy. I asked my doctor about that but he said "then you wouldn't be able to walk at all". So I don't think he would do that. Of course it depends on the type surgery you have done as far as how soon you can weight bear. You can "Google" the Lapidus buionectomy but basically the work is done at the base... (11 replies)
... Hi All - well I had my 4 week check today with x-rays post buionectomy. Well the doctor is extremely pleased (was patting himself on the back). The healing is coming along great and he thinks he may be able to remove the 1 external screw (pin) in the top of my foot in 2 weeks. The bad news is I still have to be in the heavy air walker boot and stay with the crutches for the... (11 replies)
... Hi All - I'm so glad to have found this sight.:wave: As you can see I'm only 2 weeks post op tomorrow from my first buionectomy. I'm 57 and have had bunions as long as I can remember. Never thought about having anything done until recently. Went to the dr about 6 months ago and the first thing he did was make orthodicts for my extremely flat feet. They've been great. ...

... I had a Cheron Buionectomy 6 weeks ago. Along with shaving the bunion, he also removed a v shaped wedge of bone, straightened the toe and put in an absorbable screw. ... (27 replies)
Crutches or not
Oct 26, 2003
... I will be having surgery on the 31st to correct a failed buionectomy. The first time I did not use crutches. I don't think that was the reason the bunionectomy failed, however, I have heard lots of people on this board say that they used cruthes after surgery. Technically, I will not be non-weight bearing. My doctor says he wants me to use the foot as soon as possible to... (7 replies)
