... n't get up much because the day before I had over done it and had trouble sleeping at night. During the day, I kept my foot up whenever I was sitting down. At 8 months after surgery at the end of a long day, I still elevate the foot 90 degrees in the evening and put an ice pack on it when it has swelled. ... (10 replies)
... I think the first thing you should do is talk to him or her about it. I'm hesitant to give you a yes or no answer on whether six weeks will be enough. For me the answer is no. ... (5 replies)
... My surgeon had me start physiotherapy at two weeks when the stitches came out and the bandages came off. He literally made me go the next day, and I'm convinced that's been a big factor in my recovery. ... (5 replies)

... One of the problems I have had since the surgery are that my middle toes don't work well anymore. He cut the muscle in my fourth toe during the bunionectomy to help my toe lay flat but it failed, too. Now that joint is frozen. ... (21 replies)
... Hi Delightfuldior, thanks for your reply! It is always nice to hear from people from the other side of the world of their bunion healing experience. Such good emotional support - as I am still kind of on my 11 days post-op, slowly making my way to the 2 weeks post-op mark! :) My foot is feeling more of itself now. Once in a while I have some numb feelings, and little pin... (41 replies)
... nflams and the tramadol made me feel sick so I weaned myself off them and took paracetamol every 4 hours eventually winding down off these. I found the first two weeks horrific. ... (41 replies)

... h hammertoes and pins in the hammertoes. I was allowed to weight bear with surgical shoes immediately. I walked out of surgery the same day. BUT for the next two weeks my feet were so swollen and attempting to walk on them pressed on that swelling so that it hurt too much to stand let alone walk. ... (2 replies)
... Yeah, the bandaging is to protect the wound. My Dr was very concerned that I not get the toe with the pin wet since that was an open wound. Once those pins were out they weren't concerned about the bandaging. In fact toward week 5 I just took the bandaging off and didn't even pretend that I hadn't removed it. He never complained about it. As long as the stitches have come out,... (41 replies)
... wow, so more or less 8 weeks you were back at work with normal shoes on. I commend you! ... (41 replies)
... I didn't get back to work until 8 weeks after but that was because I cracked the still healing bone in my right great toe and had to wait longer to get rid of the splint on that foot. ... (41 replies)

... Don't despair! I think most of us would agree that the first few weeks are the worst after bunion surgery. ... (41 replies)
... overy. I won't chance wearing heels higher than 1" though. I do sequence ballroom dancing socially and I am going to try going back to it next week which will be 8 weeks post op. It doesn't feel anything like normal yet but it is getting there. Hope you get more and more excercising done to your benefit. ... (64 replies)
... THe left foot I had Lapidus fusion, (three incisions, with the fusion up towards the ankle held by three screws) took 6 months to get back to someonw normal use (normal shoes) but is now great. right foot I had the Chevron procudure, is one incision by the toe, held by a pin that was removed at six weeks. After getting infected by the pin, it did heal, and the pin was... (8 replies)
... I didn't even attempt to wear regular shoes at 7 weeks! I wore the boot for a month, then I had a surgical shoe for the second month. At 8 weeks I slowly began wearing slip on shoes for an hour or so each day until the swelling really went down. ... (8 replies)
... too and suspect my surgery was a failure, at least on one foot. Very depressing to think I went through all this pain and put so many people out helping me for weeks and weeks, all for nothing! Well, we'll see. Let us know how your situation develops! And I hope you have relief as your feet heal over time! ... (6 replies)
... The countdown is on til my surgery :) I'm frantically trying to get everything in order and only have a few chores left to keep me busy this week. I will admit to some nerves kicking in as well...even though I've had the same foot done 2x already, this seems like a much more invasive procedure. The Dr. scheduled me outpatient, but shortstay. This means overnight. I... (0 replies)
... You still need to ask your dr. the exact name of the procedure, as what you described could encompass several procedures. My 2nd bunionectomy involved them doing a V cut on the distal portion of my bone...I was able to bear weight as tolerated immediately. It was a Chevron osteotomy. ... (6 replies)
