... Jennifer - hey there! And welcome. I had my first surgery on 8/16 (almost 2 weeks ago). I have always had flat feet and bunions as for as long as I can remember. The look never bothered me and I had resigned myself to wide unattractive feet and shoes that you could see my bones bulging on the side. Until about 2 years ago I had no pain. Then little by little the actual bunion... (5 replies)

... Hi Jo, I had closing base wedge osteotomy with McBride bunionectomy at the end of February and was non-weight bearing for 8-9 weeks. (You can probably find my previous posts by searching by "cyclist.") I had my bunion removed, bone taken out in two places, and 3 screws put in my foot. To me, the surgery was only a mild inconvenience. I had no pain and very little... (5 replies)

... hrodesis AND did an Achilles tendon lengthening AND a bunionectomy. The cast came off in 12 weeks, and I was able to shed the boot and the final crutch within 3 weeks of getting the hard cast off. I do remember, being the running addict that I am, gong for a "slog" IN BOOT about a week after the cast came off. ... (39 replies)
... Hello, it's been a long time since I posted in this thread, and wanted to share my results to date. I had triple arthrodesis in July 2003, along with an Achilles tendon lengthening, ankle stabilization, one osteotomy, and a bunionectomy. This is probably more than most will have to endure, but I think it's important for me to share the good parts of my recovery so that... (193 replies)
... My doctor tells me that it is normal for the big toe to remain numb for up to 8 months after a bunionectomy, but that sensation almost always returns after this point or before. ... (2 replies)
... Hi, I just wanted to check in to see how you were doing with your hammertoe surgery. Right now I'm at about 12 weeks post-op and my toes are still somewhat painful to walk this normal?? and esp. my second toe on my right foot really hurts..i can't bend it too much. If i only knew for sure that this is something that just takes time, i'll be ok, but i'm afraid the... (0 replies)

... ared carefully beforehand and I thanked myself every day for it. Because I was trying to make it easy on both my husband and myself I cooked ahead and froze two weeks worth of meals for both of us. Even at that, we ran out of food a week earlier than I was ready to cook, so my husband had to fill in, but it helped enormously. ... (13 replies)
... I am 8 days post op on my left foot bunionectomy and 5 weeks post op with the right foot. I developed a blister today right along the incision. Has anyone ever had this happen? ... (2 replies)
... I'm 3 weeks post-op and I still elevate and ice my right foot, as needed. I'm so impressed you folks that get both done at the same time. My doctor wouldn't do it,nor did I want it, since I'm a mom and have to be functional rather quickly. I am driving (it's 2-footed driving) and it's not hard. The doctor didn't scold me for it--just told me to be sure and break with my... (4 replies)
... You know, I don't know what he means by that? I had left foot bunionectomy last May and right foot on 1/6. I wore my blue shoe until week 7 and it was hard as heck finding a tennis shoe that was bearable. I had to get a VERY wide shoe, much wider than I normally wore. Actually, this time, since my left foot is now fixed, I might get some of those Birkenstock type shoes for... (13 replies)
... I am almost 5 weeks post op from my bilateral bunionectomy on 8/28/03. Bones were cut on both my feet but only the left foot needed a screw to hold it together. I had ace wrap until my 2nd post op at 4 weeks. For the first 4 days, I relied on my husband to carry me to the bathroom. I have been getting around the house with my hands, butt and heels since the 4th day after... (8 replies)
