Bunion surgery
Jun 15, 2016
... Hi! How did your surgery go? I had a lapidus done 3 weeks ago, but I have screws, not pins. Two screws will stay, but one might "make its way out." I am still on crutches, not weightbearing. My incisions healed nicely (2 week mark), but the swelling is definitely there. The aircast will be around 8 weeks, and then I'll be in a shoe. How about you? Hope it's going well! (3 replies)
... a in both of my feet. I have had cortisone injections and wear custom orthotics. They are still painful and cause numbing in my toes. My right foot also has a bunion and hammertoe. I have been told that I should have all three fixed at once. ... (8 replies)
... tender for quite some time. I had to buy new tennis shoes, not because of the swelling, but because the lace location went right on top of my incisions and I couldn't handle it. I found some shoes that had the laces more centered in the shoe. Are you able to wear clog type shoes perhaps some Merrells? ... (4 replies)

... Hi, exdancer2. I had lapidus bunionectomies 4 years ago and finally got 6 screws removed last Friday (3 from each foot). They've been bothering me for about a year, so I finally met with my foot surgeon last month and he agreed it was time to take them out. He normally leaves them in, but if they are bothersome for any reason, he will remove them. He looked at new x-rays and... (8 replies)
... Kathyt - You asked what my recovery was like, since I had some similar procedures to what you are having. I had outpatient surgery in a city over 200 miles from where I live (I live in very rural eastern MT). Spent one additional night in a motel in the city, so the doc could check everything the next day before the drive home - with me in the back seat, reclined and leg... (10 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)
... Hello, brand new here..26 yrs old..5 days ago I had foot surgery. Chevron, and tailors bunions both removed. My 2nd metatarsal was shortened, it was about 5mm too long, 2 neuromas removed, and my pinky was turned so it wouldn't go sideways. Needless to say I had a lot done in one foot, and now have 3 incisions, and 3 screws. My doctor wasn't going to give me crutches but I... (2 replies)
... Hi, I'm 15 weeks post bilateral bunionectomy. I still have some swelling, not in my big toe but in the joints where the bunions were. I still have some numbness in the one foot that was worse. My incisions are on top of my feet but I'm numb more towards the side of my foot (where the bunion was). My understanding is that it can take up to a year to fully heal as well.... (9 replies)
... I ended up going back to the doctor's office to start PT. When the physical therapist felt my foot and leg, she said, "Oh my gosh...your foot and leg are freezing". She had started putting electrodes on my foot and leg so she could start therapy. When she found out I had a history of epilepsy as a child, she said she could not do therapy as it could triger a seizure. She... (19 replies)
... Research who does minimally invasive surgery in your area. I had the same issue, I was terrified. Minimally invasive surgery fell out of favor many years ago because it takes more time and skill to do it right. I found someone who does it and did not require and screws or other fixative devices. Three tiny incisions. I had my first one done in October and second one a... (8 replies)
... in the toe which would correct the angle, but which would not need a screw or stitches. The break would be held in place with bandages. He also would remove the bunion and cut the tendons to keep proper alignment of the toe. ... (8 replies)
... I would say that yes it's pretty normal. Your incision was deep (to the bone), so you've got a lot of healing going on. My incisions have been uncomfortable on and off since my surgery-excluding swelling, of course. However, I've noticed a huge improvement in the last week or so. (1 replies)
... I am sorry to hear of your problems, however I can not answer your questions, or give you advice, I had major foot reconstruction surgery in August and I am only 16 weeks post op, but I am not having any trouble with my bunionectomy site. The top of my foot near my big toe is very sensitive near the incisions, but I am not having any trouble close to what you are... (4 replies)
... Don't panic! I had bunion and bunionette surgery on my left foot three weeks ago. I had the same surgery on my right foot four years ago, and had a very good result. ... (4 replies)
... My current situation is that although my incisions have now healed, I have been left with severe internal scarring, nerve damage and deformity from the infection. ... (11 replies)
... op for me. I had a moderate bunion and a tailor bunion removed on one foot, and small bunion and tailor bunion removed from the other. I have a pin in each foot where the tailor bunion was and a pin in my left foot where the larger bunion was. ... (10 replies)
... Good morning, Twinx :) BTW, congratulations on your recent wedding!!!! I forgot to mention this yesterday. Just wanted to add that my surgery was done by an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in foot/ankle surgery. As with many, I did not receive a lot of specific instructions and "don't dos" but I've tried to limit my walking as much as possible the first two... (11 replies)
... Hi Pickgina, Boy, do I ever know what you mean, at least about some of it. 3-1/2 weeks ago, I had a bunionectomy that turned into a joint implant. The pain meds (hydrocodone apap - 5/500) were completely ineffective, the incisions burned, the foot was horribly swollen, including ALL tingling/burning toes, and the crutches left semi-permanent dents in my armpits. The only... (9 replies)
... I'm Caucasian and have a very small scar on my left foot (Lapidus 8/09), but have a small keloid on my right foot (Lapidus 12/09). The incision on my right foot didn't heal as easily as the left. My doctor said the inside dissolvable stitches were poking through and irritating my skin, and that's where the keloid formed. It's still purplish, but I was told it could take a... (24 replies)
... Hello Klang, Sounds like you had similar surgery to mine. My surgery was performed on March 23. I am seven weeks post op. I had metatarsals on toes 2, 3, 4 shortened, big toe straightened, toes 2, 3, were fused. Nothing was done to my baby toe. I had pins, wires, I am not sure what they are called as everyone seems to call them something different, coming out of toes 2... (20 replies)
