... This may not be connected, but your letter rang a bell for me. I had the bunions on either side of the right foot operated on at the same time.

... Hi There, I am 3 weeks post-op. I had a bunionectomy and both sides of my right foot. I had the osteotomy for both, with a wedge cut in the bone on the big toe side (sorry I don't know the technical term for my surgery). Each side has a pin and they will be removed this Thursday which will be four weeks post-op. Most of my pain issues have been related to the incision... (40 replies)

... You know, neither of my surgeons ever mentioned to me that I shouldn't take anti-inflammatory drugs. My first surgeon actually prescribed them to me. Could partially explain the non-union. I go back to doctor tomorrow for my 8 week check up. I'm still totally NWB. It's been tough but hopefully the end is in sight. I'm glad your surgery went well! (17 replies)

... Talking about weight bearing, I had scarf osteotomies both feet (same as Pearl) so 100% weight bearing was perfectly fine from day one according to my OS.

... It actually sounds like your pod is giving you some thorough information, which is a great start. I had both feet done this year: the left (more severe one) in January, and the right one in May and I'm completely up and about and have been for a couple months now. You should really allow yourself three months, and that's including some PT, depending on how long your doctor... (8 replies)
