... I had a bunionectomy/osteotomy a week ago and as with basically everyone here, was instructed to elevate and ice that foot. Non-weight-bearing for 5 weeks, on crutches, and very minimal activity for the first 4 days. Now, I don't recall being told, not have I asked, when I might be able to try sitting with my foot down. I have it fully elevated (at least 6" above heart)... (2 replies)

... hat are similar on both big toe joints. Neither had hardware. For me, both times I could put my heel down to get to the bathroom on crutches, etc. Was without crutches by a week out. ... (6 replies)
... Sorry if I wasn't clear there. We had the discussion on how active I am outdoors, but what it probably boiled down to is him needing to assess me after the surgery before committing to an answer. Still, I'd like to have an idea other than 4-5 weeks on crutches. He may have even said when I'll walk again (if no crutches, I'm assuming good enough to walk/drive after that???),... (6 replies)

... In Michigan, but originally west coast, so winter weather is still new to me and always will be strange. In coming upstairs for bed, I fell forward on the very first step (to reach the staircase landing where I'd then generally sit to cootch up) and put weight on my cast! I can't remember if I even had time to hop up on the good foot (hadn't planted crutches well) and my cast... (10 replies)
... Hello again. It's now 6 days post-op for my left foot lapidus bunionectomy where my doctor used two screws to fix my MT1 to the medial cuneiform (thankfully he didn't feel the need to also do proximal phalanx osteotomy once he was working - one less thing to heal!). Just back from the doctor's office for xrays and he's encouraged, thinking I'll "only" have to wear my cast for... (4 replies)
... I am four weeks post op today and I love my compression sock. I use athletic tape as an alternative to give me a break and that is working well too. Even after four weeks, that foot is still getting iced and elevated at least 3 times a day. (4 replies)
