... hi, i drove after 8 weeks from a previous bunion surgery. standing all day may be tough. be careful and ask your dr. ... (5 replies)
... ibility that you would have to "jam" on your brakes quick and hard that would be the problem. I know it is frustrating to not be "mobile". I couldn't drive for 8 weeks and it was so frustrating to be dependent on someone to get around. Patience is the name of the game. ... (5 replies)
... hi hoppy, you are very lucky. you must have folllowed drs orders and it seems like you are recovering well. try not to look at your foot, but go by the way it feels. dont wear shoes that are tight because that could bring the bunion back. i am so happy for you. i am still so swollwn, wearing a compression sock, wearing gym shoes that are too big and still have pain. ...

... Hi Hoppy - glad to hear you are doing so well. I'm a little surprised that your doctor doesn't want to see you again. I'm 12+ weeks out and I have an appt to see my dr on Feb 1st (I had a Lapidus procedure) don't know if that makes a difference or if doctors are just different. I can wear sneakers all day without a problem (although my ankle still swells a little at... (6 replies)
... I had my 8 week appointment today, and everything looks good! ... (6 replies)
... Of course the first day in the sneaker was a little tight but after that each day got remarkably better. I'm 12 weeks now and except for a little ankle swelling I think I'm doing great. No pain at all. ... (2 replies)
... from bunionectomy with first metatarsal fusion and every day is a little better. ... (3 replies)
... I'm 3-1/2 mos out from my bunionectomy (osteotomy w/cheilectomy.) I can't say that I'm totally pain free yet, but my foot isn't keeping me from doing most things except really strenuous exercise like jumping & running. And I probably could do those too (within reason) but I'm not really athletic so I haven't felt like pushing it. As for walking, I've been able to go for... (3 replies)
... op. I did try on the new running shoes I got at 6 weeks and I couldn't even get my foot into it. ... (10 replies)
... weeks from the date of surgery and the bone won't be fully healed for 8 weeks, because it is a fracture. I wish I had known that before the surgery! I should have done more research, but I just believed her. ... (5 replies)
... Becky/Mary I'm sure a lot of the pain you're experiencing is from the way you have been walking. I know my back was really bothering me (and my shoulder) especially when I was using both crutches. I was favoring my left leg because I could not bear down on the right foot and it knocked my body out of whack. I got rid of one crutch and started using just the one. It... (2 replies)
... I also still cannot move my big toe. Two weeks ago the dr said he might send me for PT to increase range of motion but he wasn't ready for anyone to start "playing with it yet". ... (5 replies)
... Hi Becky - remember I am not as far out as you (only 8 weeks today) but it is strange you say that about the knees. Since I've had this surgery when I get in bed at night and my knees touch each other they are both sore. I'm sure it's from the way I've been walking but I do want to mention it to the doctor tomorrow. I still have not been weight bearing without the "boot" so... (2 replies)
... Welcome to the board NattyLite - I'll be thinking of you on Friday. Hope all goes well. I'm 8 weeks post op tomorrow from a Lapidus Bunionectomy (slightly different then yours). I'm not sure what kind my podiatrist wanted to do but he had to change plans once he got started as my bones started to shift. I also had a severe bunion. Don't get discouraged in the beginning -...

... I had an Austin bunionectomy 13 days ago. ... (10 replies)
... Hi again Marathon 50 - glad your surgery is behind you and you are on the road to recovery. Not overdoing is the most crucial. I'm 7 1/2 weeks post op and just started walking in my air boot without crutches and even that can be exhausting! Please have your doctor check the height of your crutches when you go in tomorrow. They should not be hurting your underarms - in fact... (3 replies)
... and information to share with others who have had or are looking to have this surgery. My right foot is the bad one. I'm told I will probably be in a cast for 8 weeks and will not be able to drive. I want to come back to work fairly soon and have a desk job, so I'm hoping I can swing it. ... (6 replies)
... improvement from 2 weeks ago. However, after about an hour on the foot, the foot starts to hurt and I have to get off it. There is still swelling of the large toe and it is stiff. ... (3 replies)
... One day at a time...that's been my mantra for the last 8 weeks. Hope you're feeling better soon. ... (8 replies)
... I hope the next 2 weeks fly by for you and things get better. I never imagined it would be such a long slow recovery. ... (3 replies)
