... id she wasn't ready to remove my staples yet, I still had a lot of swelling and the incision wasn't as healed as she wanted it to be yet. She said I could start driving at this point, if I felt comfortable doing so. ... (3 replies)
... und to the front to get in. Here in Seattle we get a lot of rain so I can see myself lying flat out in the wet parking lot after taking a double gainer. So, no driving for me yet. Not much snow at this time of year but it can be really slick. ... (10 replies)
... LoveOysters; Oh I will definitely shut my door and prop up my leg in between my class lectures (with a "knock, I'm in" sign to give me warning). I think my students won't mind if I do that in class too as we sit around conference tables. Will definitely have to wear wide legged trousers and the thought of make up and dressing does seem monumental. I will (or rather, my... (10 replies)

... I'm just about 5 weeks post surgery (all-American reconstruction and bunionectomy). My husband works out of town during the week and my elderly father who lives with us broke his ankle a month before my surgery. My step-daughter is at school until 3:30. The first couple of days a friend would stop by in the morning, but after that I was, essentially, home alone. I didn't have... (11 replies)
... It seems like the people on this board will know how to advise me...my friends and family don't know what to say! I am a mother with an 18 month old toddler. I have a helpful, wonderful husband but we both work. Right after the surgery my son will be able to go to day care during the day while I recuperate at home. My husband will drop him off and pick him up. My work is... (2 replies)
Post Bunionectomy

... I personally felt like the surgery (she cut bunion and put pin in) went well and the pain was less than I expected (I have high pain tolerance) I kept foot up w/ice and ibuprofen for the inflamation. It is my left foot so after 1 week I was driving. I am appx. 5 weeks out and still out of work. I'm still in pain and basically babying my foot so that I don't mess anything... (4 replies)

... Hello Profmia, the product I got is called 'Tight Seal" which only cost me Canadian $7.00 at the health care speciality store near my local hospital. It was basically a long (the shape of a leg) plastic bag with a verco strap which comes with it to tight up the top part of the thigh so it stays up when you bath or shower. However, I find that water still leaked in it when I... (41 replies)
... oes and ankles wear. He told me I could drive since I was not taking the strong pain pills. I kept the surgery slipper for driving. The sugery slipper is ok for driving but once you reach your destination, you'll have to change into the boot and walk with the boot. ... (5 replies)

... Hello all I've been following most of the bunionectomy threads for advice and it's been really helpful, am wondering if anyone can help with my little problem (worry!!) I had my surgery done in Feb, am now 6 weeks post op. I wasn't in plaster casts but able to be mobile by wearing surgical shoes which are specifically designed to keep your toes pointing directly upwards and... (0 replies)
... right due to bad bunion. Last June I had left foot done and second toe hammertoe surgery, that was so worth it too! The right foot is harder because there is no driving for 6 weeks. The best type of doctor is an ortho surgeon who does nothing but feet. Podiatrists are not good. ... (5 replies)
... Hi Delightfuldior, thanks for your reply! It is always nice to hear from people from the other side of the world of their bunion healing experience. Such good emotional support - as I am still kind of on my 11 days post-op, slowly making my way to the 2 weeks post-op mark! :) My foot is feeling more of itself now. Once in a while I have some numb feelings, and little pin... (41 replies)
... Hi All, Thanks so much for continuing to tell your stories. I had my 2 week post-op check-up with the nurse and at first found myself barely able to squint at the damage as the original dressings were removed. However very pleased to say that my feet didn't look half bad. Some bruising to my second toes, redness and a bit of swelling around the joint, very little dried... (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)
... 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...
