... Hi, Mambito! Ugh, so sorry you're going through this - my incision was the most annoying part of my recovery. It too kept splitting open - not as much as yours though. At one point right at 4 weeks out I went back to crutches (I had been off them since week 2 - I also had a chevron bunionectomy) and total non-weight-bearing on the operated foot, just to give the incision a...

... Hi all - I haven't been around in a while but I just wanted to update everyone including some of the newbies. I had a Lapidus buionectomy Oct 18, 2006 (8 months ago).

... Glad to hear that things do get better - I'm at 6 weeks myself, and though the pain is minimal (some nerve twinges when I step on it wrong, which means I'm still hobbling fairly carefully), I'm concerned because my toe won't bend downward at all - it goes straight, but when I step on the foot, the toes still don't touch the ground, and there's a strong pulling sensation in the...

... at 8 weeks I was able to "sneak" my foot into a sneaker for a couple hours a day. After that things improved quickly. It was probably a good 12 weeks before I could get into a "shoe" and both my sneakers and shoes were purchased after the surgery. ... (14 replies)
... Hey everyone, I am not at 8 weeks post-op from a chevron bunionectomy. I had my final Doc. appt. yesterday and they took final x-rays. They say that I am healing nicely, however I am not 100% healed as I still have a small area that has not joined completely. Bascially, they've told me that I can start wearing regular shoes and to go at my own pace. I'm laughing becuase... (14 replies)
