... I am scheduled for bunion / hammertoe surgery the 1st of year with an orthopedic surgeon. He only does one foot at a time & uses pins instead of screws & I am trying to decide if I should go get another opinion from another doctor to find out if I can have a double bunionectomy with screws rather than pins because it sounds like the recovery is a lot different with temporary...

... That's great you are walking so far. I'm not sure I could go 6 miles yet, because my foot swells and the one bone, broken above the toe, is still tender.

You are also supposed to desensitize the scar, by rubbing it with a rough towel or something similar. As far as range of motion, I've also bent the toe area back and forth. I am now trying to curl my toes around a... (22 replies)
