... Wow...seems like forever since I've had my surgery!! My advice to you now a yr and half since my bi-lateral lapidus, is it takes TIME. My Dr. told me 6 wks, it was more like 12 wks before I could walk SLOWLY. I did my own toe and ankle exercises at home and practiced walking and learning to walk again...heel to toe, very ,very, slowly. I was never in a boot or cast, only... (8 replies)
... If you are wearing out one side of your shoe over the other, chances are you are walking on that side of your foot more than the other side. So, that could explain why you are getting callused feet or toes. The bunion could be because you are either not wearing the proper shoe for your particular feet or you are sitting/standing/walking with pressure over one part of your... (3 replies)
... I fractured and dislocated my talus 12 years ago. The orthopedic surgeon performed an ORIF on my right talus. Always walked with my feet rotated outwards, but after this injury, my right foot is even more externally rotated than before. Sounds like you and I have a similar issue. My callus was EXTREMELY painful. It burned and throbbed quite often...with or without shoes.... (3 replies)
... re allowed to wear a sneaker, then you will be able to attempt a normal gait, and trust me, it will be uncomfortable for the first few weeks. I am 7 wks post op bunion and Tailor bunionectomies on my left foot. ... (8 replies)
... feels some pain though bunion side feels fine. I'm concerned now. My doctor had told me that i should be able to take my vacation by mid October, but now i'm not sure. ... (8 replies)
... Inquisitiveman: You have just begun to exercise your toe, don't panic. Keep doing the exercises and you will see progress. Once you are in a sneaker and are allowed to walk small distances, focus on using the proper gait. Roll off the toes, and don't be put off by some discomfort. My first few times out walking with "purpose", I was saying "Ow, ow, ow". Having been... (21 replies)
... If this subject has been addressed already I apologize. I have a pronounced callus on my right big toe and the beginnings of a bunion on the big toe side of my right foot. I cannot figure out why. ... (3 replies)
... Hi Bones, first of all, I want to thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I really feel that letting each other know in this way of things that worked and things that went horribly wrong is extremely important. When we are patients with a specialist, they have so much authority. At the end of the day, you can often feel shafted. Especially if their... (9 replies)
... Whatever you do, don't walk backwards. In no way shape or form is that going to train you to walk properly. It prevents a limp because it isn't a normal gait pattern. You just had surgery. You are supposed to be limping! ... (8 replies)
... as there is some pain still, so again, this causes an imbalance, improper gait and then pain in other parts of the foot like the heal and outer area as well as ankle..... ... (8 replies)

... Just wanted to hear from other people who have had bunion surgery and ask "when did you start to walk normally again without a limp? ... (8 replies)
... Rosal - I can sympathisize with your feeling that it's too soon to take a step, but my experience was that the healing curve is really steep! I'm at 12 weeks post-bunion surgery now and have already scheduled my other foot for 4 weeks from today! For me the huge change came at about the 6 week mark - I went from limping along in my surgical shoe to pretty much normal walking... (10 replies)
... physiotherapist suggested that I'm still not quite walking normally and am subconsciously babying the part of my foot I had operated on, which is throwing off my gait and causing me pain in other parts of my foot. ... (3 replies)
... Thank You so much for your help. I am trying very hard to walk normal. I guess it just takes time to be able to walk normal. I could be favoring that foot without realizing it. Wow you have had some serious surgeries on your foot. I guess you have went through the whole walk thing. I feel sorry for you to have to endure that on the same foot. I am going to try to walk in the... (5 replies)
... You just make yourself quit limping and walk straight. I know that sounds simple but it is hard to do after so long because you were probably favoring it before you ever had the surgery. It just takes time. I've had 2 foot surgeries and a broken foot - all on the same foot and within about 5 years of each other. It took many months before it all sorted out each time. You...

... It takes a long time to get back to normal. You pobably didn't realize it before the surgery but your gait was altered then - trying to accomodate the problems with the foot. Walking normally is something you really have to consciously think about as you walk. The worst time I had was after a stress fracture. Thought I would never get my foot to operate properly!
