... KathyT -- Did your doctor say you would be able to return to work after that many days? Every surgery, recovery is different, but that seems like very soon to return to work if you will be totally non-weight bearing (NWB). I had osteotomies of my 2nd and 3rd metatarsals and bunion repaired (great toe) (plus some other things - see below) on May 1. My doctors orders were... (10 replies)
... ater it is back and worse than before. My new doc seems to think that this neuroma callous at the bottom of my foot is actually the metatarsal bones. I am having osteotomy surgery on the 2nd and 3rd toes as well as tailor bunion surgery. ... (10 replies)
... I had a bunion (Chevron w/osteotomy), bunionette and hammertoe done, and I went downstairs to do laundry about 10 days later with no ill effects....I probably should have waited 2 weeks though. That's where I am now, the 2 week mark, and am walking in the boot to work, with stairs being no trouble. (6 replies)
... heel osteotomy for flat foot, and bunionectomy. ... (0 replies)
... the left foot in August and the right one 4 weeks ago. You said the recovery is much longer, and it is, but from what I've learned it's pretty permanent. My right foot seems to be healing a lot faster than my left one did. ... (3 replies)
... so I'm having the oblique osteotomy done to shorten it. The excessively long bone has caused me to feel like I've stepped on a nail while walking around on wood flooring at my house. ... (50 replies)

... Don't worry, you are doing well at four weeks. I was in a shoe at five weeks. Try to walk with the whole foot when you feel comfortable, and roll off your toes. I had hip pain and figured out that I was continuing to walk on my heel, protecting my toes (I had bunionectomy with osteotomy on both sides of the right foot a year ago this May). Once I began to consciously walk... (50 replies)
... do following suture removal I did and had to be nwb for a week. I had osteotomy on both sides of the right foot with pins. I was walking in a surgical shoe, on the heel, right away, but only for the necessities. ... (50 replies)

... and that is why I developed the keloid. At that appointment he said that he way over corrected my heel and lengthened my foot way too much and when he fixed my bunion he fused my first metatarsal way too low. He said that I could do a revision, but with that comes possible complications of more nerve damage. ... (6 replies)
... Good to hear, thanks. I'm only having one toe done and will supposedly only wear a Darco boot afterward. Supposedly I can put weight on it right away though I know there will be limitations the first few weeks. I was told I can drive as soon as I'm off the pain meds, and can ride a bicycle after a couple weeks and an indoor bike even sooner. This doesn't sound so bad, but... (3 replies)
... I had this procedure plus hammertoe correction on three toes on my left foot. I also had a large bunion corrected with a fusion. Since I had other procedures also I don't think I can tell you much about the osteotomy alone. ... (3 replies)
