... almost word for word. My bunionectomy was too conservative or the bones shifted and healed in an incorrect way. ... (4 replies)
... I had double bunionectomy 8/26 (also have a post up about this) but can tell you that you are VERY early in recovery. I didn't have a decent night's sleep after my surgery for weeks! And terrible pain in the first week. At @ 4 weeks I had major burning on the soles of my feet, but that seems to have subsided just recently. I think you need to keep your feet iced, elevated,...

... No I have not - I don't like taking medications. I know anti-inflammatories are not good for your stomach. I will have to ask the doctor how severe the damage is. It just seems like something is not right, that I should not be in this kind of pain a year after the surgery. I am wondering if the wrong procedure was done. My pod is referring me to a foot and ankle... (18 replies)

... Sophie, thanks for your response. Yes, I am having screws removed. All but 1 in the big toe for the Akin procedure. I am just getting tired of being in this pain. I did the surgery to be out of pain, but it seems worse. I guess I am afraid of the surgery being a "failure." Yes, I have fear of the unknown. No guarantee with surgery and I don't want to end of a cripple. ... (36 replies)
... Chubstercat, I have been reading your posts and I just feel that you are making TOO much of the staple removal. Yes, it may hurt and that is why you will not be awake. :mad: BUT...when you wake up, there will not be that intense pain that you felt with the original surgery. Nothing even remotely like it. Normally the doctor will give the hardware a minimum of 6 months... (36 replies)
... We are in about the same time frame, recovery wise. I had a Keller Bunionectomy and my Dr. did the same thing, wrapping my toe to help it heal in a certain position. He called it "splinting". At my 4 week visit last Tues. . ... (5 replies)
... and immediately noticed the surgery didn't work. I did my research AFTER my Keller and found out I should never have consented to it!!! The failure rate is high unless one is very sedentary. ... (22 replies)

... You will not be competing in any kind of weight bearing event 3 days after a bunionectomy unles you want total failure of the procedure. Seriously! You need to be off that foot for a prolonged period of time. Check with your surgeon. ... (4 replies)
... Hi Caroline, A clog does not sound like a good shoe to start off in as you have to flex your foot to keep it from sliding off with every step. I would be inclined to think a sneaker would be a better choice. A heavier sock would also be better as it would give you better cushioning. Ron (4 replies)
... I'm so sorry to hear that your surgery was less than successful. I hope that your foot will heal just fine & that if the bunion returns it will be in the mild category. I had the Austin bunionectomy with a permanent screw instead of a pin & have also been frustrated with doctor's orders. I'm at 5 weeks post-op today & at my last week's visit, I was told to start wearing a... (4 replies)
... That's just awful! I'm so sorry this has happened to you. Having just come through a bunionectomy myself about 8 weeks ago, I can just imagine how discouraging this must be. I know from experience that the doctor's instructions are often unclear. ... (4 replies)
