... Hi Jenn, I have had no experience with this type of surgery. However I am surprised your doctor tells you not to take any pain med. if you can't sleep. One week post op does not seem very long at all. As patients we have a right to have pain relief and you need your sleep to heal. ... (2 replies)

... ncing that with the fact that perhaps I should be more mobile now or using that boot to improve healing and avoid getting stiffness in that joint, etc. Maybe one week is too soon to have those concerns just yet? ... (2 replies)
... :eek: Hi all, I'm one week post-op from right bunionectomy, hammertoe, and metatarsal resection. I thought I was doing really well until yesterday afternoon. The top of my foot and my toes started hurting so bad that I had to take a pain med for the first time since Wednesday. The pain continued into last night and kept me up most of the night. There was a severe burning... (5 replies)

... I was a little confused at all the procedures too. And my Dr. has said that once I feel comfortable cleaning the pins that I can do it myself. We'll see. It didn't bother me too much to see the fixator in my foot at 1 week post-op. It kind of looks like a hair pick but with only four pins. And then it gets wrapped up immediately so nobody else will ever see it. I'm assuming it... (149 replies)
... Hi :-) Yes, I was planning on the left foot and I drive automatic. I can always have my husband drive me to work too:-) My co-workers mom saw this dr too. She is 1 week post-op and was out shopping the other day(in her boot). She feels great and says the first 3 days were the worst. What anesthia did you opt for? (14 replies)
... I hope you have a bit more patience as only 1 week post-op, you still have some time to go :-) Do you know the exact technique done for your double bunionectomy? That may decide also how soon you can be weight bearing. I had both feet done on June 3rd, but I still keep my feet elevated whenever (which is pretty much all the time). If you are experiencing leg aches and ankles... (35 replies)
... Funny you mention the rolling chair; I ordered one online yesterday as we didn't have one. It was delivered this morning and sits on the front step in its box. It is so frustrating that I can't even get it!! I have to wait til my husband gets home to get it for me! (2 replies)

... weight bearing for a few more weeks. I did take Percodet and Vicodin for the first two days post surgery. My surgeon said to do it whether I was in pain or not because it would keep it from hurting. ... (3 replies)
... week post op. ... (30 replies)
... on for the simple reason this surgery is non weight bearing for at least 4 weeks because of fusions or multiple bone cuts. That doesn't mean a moderate or mild bunionectomy isn't painful or frustrating in recovery. ... (12 replies)

... carlos95, When people on this board have said you start to feel "normal again" at 5-6 months, what they mean is they start to feel "symptom-free." That means no pain, very little, if any, swelling and a return of their full toe mobility. Please don't feel you have to wait 5 MONTHS to work again; most people would go under financially in that period of time and I'm afraid... (13 replies)
