... Hello everyone, I ran across this form by acident. I've read a lot and so much of the info. Has been very helpful. I am 11 days post op and in two days I will be getting my stitches out but the three k wires that I have in my toes will have to wait another two weeks. ... (1 replies)
... KatieFeet - sounds to me like you are doing a LOT for only five days post-op! I had a somewhat similar surgery done (but no neuromas) - 4 incisions - on May 1, but I am much older than you and I'm sure that makes a big difference. I was told to be mostly non-weight-bearing for almost two weeks. Doctor said I could get up (with the boot and crutches) to go to the bathroom... (2 replies)

... I'm new to this posting to message boards - but honestly, was so happy to read about other experiences in recovering from bunion/hammertoe surgery,that I want to hear more. I am 2 weeks post-op (rt. foot) bunionectomy with hammertoe correction & I feel like I'm about to go nuts - wondering if I did the right thing.

... On the 23rd I had surgery to correct the problems from the bunion/hammertoe surgery I had 3 yrs ago. The doctor lengthened the tendon in my big toe and removed the hardware from the previous procedure. He fixed my dislocated 2nd toe and (because to bone loss/deterioration of the joint) stabilized it by webbing it to my 3rd toe. So far my recovery is going fine. I go on... (0 replies)
... op and my pod said everything was looking good. Just a little swelling where he did the hammertoe surgery. I have had little discomfort, probably due to diligent icing and elevating the first 36 hours or so. Now I am only elevating, not icing. ... (40 replies)

... I had been doing rather well with just the run of the mill kind of pain after day 8 following the bunion and hammertoe surgery and had stopped taking the pain meds. Days 8 through 13 were pretty good but since yesterday I have been experiencing something that is a bit troubling. ... (15 replies)
... Sorry you had such a bad post op visit. You evidently had quite a bit of reconstruction done on your foot. ... (7 replies)
... I had an Austin-Akin bunionectomy 30 days ago. What you describe is completely normal- you just need to keep trying and you'll find that your toe will start to "obey" you over time. Also, you can gently move the toe manually with your hand- google for "bunion surgery exercise" and you'll find a Kaiser-Permanente site with good exercises on it. If you use Google, it should be...

... I am now 18 days post-op bunion/hammertoe and metatarsal resection on right foot. When I went to my doctor this past Tuesday, he said he wanted to start trying to move my big toe more. However, it seems my big toe has a "mind of its own"! Whenever, I try to move it downward, my foot starts "quivering". I cannot more it upwards at all. Anyone have any suggestions/similar...

... Hi: I"m 8 weeks post-op and doing well. I had both feet done and was in a cast on the forefoot for three weeks. My first shoes were Birkenstock sandals. I kept my forefoot wrapped with 3 inch coban bandage to prevent swelling at the site of the incision. I could remove the bandage at night and I always kept my feet elevated on 2 pillows when sleeping. At 6weeks I could... (16 replies)

... That's wonderful that your foot (just one foot, right?) is healing so nicely! It's nice to hear good things about bunion/hammertoe surgery. My sister unfortunately is afraid to have either her bunions or hammertoes operated on because she has heard "terrible things" about surgery! I can't imagine it is as awful as some people have said, and I imagine the benefits outweigh the... (14 replies)
... Have you seen your doctor or PT yet? Just curious as to what they've said. I'm 6.5 weeks post-op bunion/hammertoe surgery and have been doing the big toe exercises for a week. I was told not to be afraid to force the toe to the maximum range of motion. It hurts! But I was told that if it doesn't hurt then I'm not pushing far enough. You have to get that joint's flexibility... (2 replies)
