... You are not going to be weightbearing for atleast 6 weeks with all you are having done and if your doc says otherwise I would be very skeptical. Better to be safe and paranoid than sorry and in the hospital again!!! ... (7 replies)
... I too have read that the chevon is the same as the Austin procedure. There does seem to be a big difference in what the doctor's personal preferences are, some use wires, screws or pins, some put patients in cast, and some in walking casts/shoes. I personally don't know how much it really matters the degree of angle that is being fixed. It does matter if it is a base... (7 replies)

... Good Grief!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't even know what to say. I will never complain again. Since you mention a broken bone that never healed. I broke my foot (yes same foot as bunionectomy) last fall and wore a boot cast for about 6 weeksish and I swear that bone never healed right!!! Sometimes it hurts and it just doesn't feel right to the touch. But I am not going to fool... (18 replies)
... Hi . . . here is an update: I visited my podiatrist/surgeon on 3/10 for a checkup. I was convinced he was going to cut my leg when he used a 3Ē circular saw hand tool to remove my cast. (Iíve never had a cast before.) Of course, he didnít. I was amazed at how different my foot looks -- no bunion and my toe is straight. He must have sanded down my foot, too, because my...

... Hi and thank you for sharing your experience! I was wondering, how long did it take before you went back down to your normal shoe size again? I had surgery on my right foot in mid November, and I still can't get into my old shoes. I bought a pair of tennis shoes a size and a half larger than my normal size to wear for the time being (my doctor told me three weeks ago to... (1 replies)
... It's been two weeks since my surgery - about the same as you, a pin and two screws, on crutches, throbs when it's not elevated - it's all normal. It's driving me crazy too, but bone takes 6-8 weeks to heal; I don't expect to put weight on my foot (at all) for another month or more. It's tough, but you have to be patient. So many people have multiple surgeries - I'd rather... (30 replies)

... Of course everyone's recovery is different but my experience was that the recovery with my left foot took about 5.5 months. I keep saying that on this board because I think I had it in my mind that the recovery was about 8 weeks (ha) so I was distressed when I was not normal then. My left foot did FINALLY feel normal (my definition of normal is being able to run down the... (9 replies)

... month postop visit to doc. When I went into this in Dec, I assumed I'd be back to my old active self in 8 weeks, certainly by 3 months! Wrong! Instead I recently had to have a debridement on my surgery foot. ... (4 replies)
