... 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)
... Thank you, monster bunion. ... (7 replies)
... exactly.. a doctor will best know which procedure to use for you based on the type of bunion you have (mild/moderate/bad). Mine were mild/moderate so I didn't have the same procedure as many others on the board. My doctor used screws versus a pin. I wasn't "up and around" in 2 days, that's for sure, but I could walk with a surgical shoe right away (it was just really... (5 replies)

... d. Looking at the foam wedges in the Medical Supply place they were not too soft and reading posts here I decided on the bean bag. My dog thought it was some big monster and barked at it off and all the first night I had it in the house, even after I put it on the floor. ... (21 replies)
... Hi Monster Bunion - Thanks so much for the information. I sure hope it doesn't come to more surgery, but my instincts are telling me that conservative treatments aren't going to be the answer. Couple of questions: Did you have a hard boot or a cast? Depending on which, could you ever remove the boot, or if you had a cast, how big was it? Also, I am wondering if you have much...

... Yes, I had thought about this a little bit and wondered if I had it done pre-pregnancy, would they come back due to regular foot issues women experience when pregnant and after like you said, Monster. Eeek! No answer yet from my doc. (11 replies)
... Thanks guys, it's truly looking like a monster foot. The nurse said medically it's gorgeous, but Cosmo wouldn't feature it! ... (5 replies)
... Thanks for your advice, it certainly is scary trying to make this decision! If the bunion procedure you had is for moderate or severe bunions I'm not sure why she wants me to have that because mine aren't that big... ... (12 replies)
... s pain after the surgery. Yes there are good days but alot of bad too. But your feet won't get better on their own. You are very young and you will be fine. Like monster bunion said, read all you can get prepared. Do all the doc tells you to do post op and try to be patient. ... (5 replies)
... g! So much for your nap! I am 5 months lapidus and starting pt. I can walk...sometimes limp everywhere. It was refreshing going to the grrocery store alone. Monster Bunion says month 6 is lots better. Try not to overdo! ... (5 replies)
... I am sentences to my boot for another 4 weeks which makes a total of 8. I never thought something like 5th metarsal bunion ssurgery could go on this long. ... (5 replies)
... Dark_Light & Monster bunion, thank you so much for your advice! I appreciate it very much! :) I'm actually thinking it may be the contact dermatitis. I looked it up & the symptoms seem to match. Yesterday I started noticing tiny blisters surrounding my incision area, & some of them were oozing a little. I had noticed little bumps on my left big toe a couple of days ago, but I... (9 replies)
... Thanks Monster Bunion, You provide some great words of wisdom. I am assuming the worst and planning on being non-weight bearing for at least the 8 weeks, but I have no idea if I will be able to manage with crutches after about a month. I would like to return to the classroom after a few weeks using the crutches. Do you think it would be possible to crutch from class to... (6 replies)

... Thank You Monsterbunion!!! It's been awhile since I last talked to you and I was wandering how you were doing! I know how this cite does not like to form cliques but it is hard because I can relate to you because we had the same procedure and it's been difficult for us both! As for class, I signed up for this disability thing and similar to a golf-cart, the cart takes me very... (7 replies)

... Yes, I do want to rush my recovery!!! But, you are so right, my foot has it's own ideas. I was taking your advise and was taking it slow.....I use the crutches for aid but I finally can put full weight without the crutches and feeling like I am going to fall down. It's been a lot better yesterday. My classes started today and I signed up to have these carts take me to my far... (21 replies)
