... a Brostrom Procedure, Perineal tendon repair, and OCD on my right ankle in 2 weeks. I would love to hear from someone that had the same type of procedure. I had bunion surgery on that foot last year, but I have NO idea what to expect with this. How long with NWB on that foot? ... (4 replies)
... e had nerve damage from each foot having bunions removed. When I had my bunions removed, I did not know they were caused from weakness. An orthopedic man did the bunion surgery. Orthopedic men are more schooled to do surgery than podiatrists. Stay clear of orthotics as well because they just make your feet weaker. ... (6 replies)

... If I were you, I would not have that surgery! I had bunion surgery years ago and about three years ago, I could see that the toes were starting to cross again and my feet were even flatter than before. ... (8 replies)

... I am experiencing something very similar, if not the same. It is very much like a bunion, but on the little toe metatarsal rather than the more common big toe bunion. I have read that its called a bunionette. I find that it hurts most if I am barefoot (something I avoid anyway), or if I am wearing hard soled shoes. Doesn't bother me much if I am wearing orthotics. I hope... (3 replies)
... Yes, get custom orthotics. Also buy wider toe shoes. Pointed or too narrow toe shoes cramp your toes and cause bunions. You can also try big toe separators but I don't think they help. (3 replies)
... I am 7 months out from foot reconstruction. I had been noticing an area on the outside of my foot which was sore and a bit "pointy". The word "bunion" crossed my mind, but I didn't even want to think about it! Yesterday my PT said my foot is everting and indeed I am getting a bunion. Anyone else have this? I imagine I should be fitted for orthotics to prevent further damage. (3 replies)
... hers here were out of the cast and into a boot or aircast at around 6 weeks. He left whether or not I did PT up to me, he didn't really seem to push it. He did bunion surgery on a friend of mine and she is pleased with her results as well. ... (12 replies)
... Hello all, I have been reading post on this board since Jan because I knew I was having surgery in May to correct the collapse of my right foot. I had the procedures that most of you talk about- 5 incisions- etc. My feet never gave me any trouble until Nov of 2013 when I developed a dorsal bunion on my 1st Metatarsal- caused by the collapse of the foot structure in the arch....

... t it. The only pain I have is in my big toe joint and that has been getting worse by the day. I cannot wear reg. shoes and orthotics for long without that dorsal bunion screaming at me, I HURT... I wear FIT FLOPS and still it will hurt off and on. It even hurts in the middle of the night. ... (5 replies)
... Hi Madison, First let me congratulate you on how well written your post was. I agree with Loveoysters that your recovery will be faster and that you will have less damage to your ankle, calf, knee etc. Most likely you were born with flat feet and not likely that you acquired it 5 yrs ago unless you experienced a high fall which you certainly would have remembered. I was... (12 replies)
... Hello all! I've started this thread in hopes of getting other peoples opinions on Flat Feet and hearing their stories. I just got reconstructive surgery Saturday, January 4, 2014. Allow me to start from the beginning. I am 15 years old and very active (dance and lacrosse). All my life I've had knee pain that was diagnosed as Os Good Schlotters disease at age 11. My family...

... I had my pre op visit with my surgeon today. I sure hope this is all worth it. He said I am not having bunion and hammertoe surgery I am having foot reconstruction. It will be about a 6 hr surgery. ... (15 replies)
... My Dr has two board certifications, one in foot surgery and the other in ankle and foot reconstruction. So, he is certainly well qualified. I talked to him about 4 yrs ago and if I'd had it done then the surgery wouldn't be as invasive, but it has changed and worsened a lot since then, even I knew this without an xray. And like I said he comes very well recommended. I think... (5 replies)

... My surgeon is a podiatrist with a specialty certification in foot and ankle surgery/reconstruction. There are 3 surgeons in his office but one is solely a podiatrist and I won't go to him for my issue. He's pretty clueless. I had to see him once when my doctor was out. ~Kimberly (8 replies)
