... I found that orthotics helped me after surgery. It seems to take the pressure off of the forefoot. Apparently, a lot of folks with bunions also have flat feet; that's not the case with me. Maybe a higher arch puts a little more pressure on the front of my foot. For me, a lot depends on the shoe. I have some shoes or boots that I'll keep a little support in even now (not... (6 replies)

... I would now be limping. I got custom orthotics, bunion pads, and bunion shoe stretchers, which worked a little, but no longer enough. Currently being in hiking boots is torture, and this summer I even started backpacking in my Keen sandals as they allowed more room for the bunion. ... (6 replies)

... I can take a shower standing up now with very little pain. I can heel walk short distances like to the bathroom. With my boots on I can walk around like a pro. I do have bright red scars from a latex allergy, or some kind of allergy to the insides of the boots. ... (2 replies)
... boot on I will need to wear it occasionally. Since the boot is open on the toes, I can't really wear it outside since it's winter. I'm wondering if Hunter rain boots may be good, lots of toe space, but maybe not enough support... Any thoughts? ... (3 replies)

... I just had surgery 2 weeks ago. After surgery you will have a surgery slipper for about 4 or 5 days and apply ice (on 20 min, off 20 min for first couple days). You'll have to take pain pills for pain. In my case i took them full-strength on day 1 and 2 and then half strength days 3-5. I didn't need them after that. As long as you take them according to directions, they should... (5 replies)
... say, I am not thinking about heals for years to come, as my L foot still need to be watched out for the bunion. So, the only heals I have are my winter leather boots which is not really 'high healed', just a bit higher than my other flats. ... (41 replies)

... Hi Polly (hope you don't mind me addressing you as Polly, more personable) ;) My 2nd visit to my foot doctor (who is the also the one who performs on my surgery) is tomorrow late afternoon. My hubby will come home a bit earlier and drives me to see her. Her clinic is about 20 minutes by highway from my home at the other end of the town. Which is not too bad for... (41 replies)
... Hi Hotdog girl, what a tremendous suprise to get a reply from you- and all the way from Canada too. I'm afraid I had to have a day more or less in bed after doing far too much the day before. I felt that I had really cracked this recovery business and was practically skipping about in my snazzy (not) velcro sandals; painting, sewing, hoovering, cooking and on more than one... (41 replies)
... Hi Delightfuldior, so glad to hear a reply as a new member myself! It does encourages me a lot to have such on-line community support during these tough weeks :) Your photos are looking good, I have to say, you're definitely on the road to full recovery, and your toes look straight and nice. I really believe it is just a matter of time for you to get the full bounds back in... (41 replies)
... Anyhow, I am fully weight bearing. Foot is still very swollen, if not more now Im walking on it. I can only fit my ugg boots on but its very painful getting them off once Ive swollen into it! ... (41 replies)
... well there seems hope! It was aching like mad yesterday after my morning 'walk' so didnt do any more and when I put my heel down this morning it was agony, pins and needles through my heel. I'm wondering if it is that plantas faciitus? I continued to heel walk/shuffle though as I had to get my coffee to the table.. it ends up on the floor if I hop lol Ive been hopping about...

... that on, its embarrassing and clumpy and I dont have any heels to match up the height on the right foot for me to walk properly. Ive got some nice soft loose ugg boots that I am hoping my foot will fit in and I'll be able to live in these for a few week, do you reckon these would be ok? ... (41 replies)
... Hi Delightful, Don't despair! I think most of us would agree that the first few weeks are the worst after bunion surgery. I'm now at 8 weeks (and four days!) post-op. Like you I had my stitches out at two weeks and then I was on crutches and only weight bearing on my heel for another month, after which I had the external pin removed and was referred for physio. I've... (41 replies)
... Wow. I'm amazed that you were driving yourself to your 2nd week post-op appointment! Did you have screws put in your foot/metatarsal? My doctor gave me one of those rigid shoes (like an ugly sandal!) with velcro closures for driving and kind of left the decision up to me. He said to only drive if I can pass the following test: sit in the car without turning it on and slam on... (9 replies)
