... along with basketball, cycling and hiking. In December of 2013 I had my first foot surgery. I was diagnosed at Kaiser with a bunion, and had a bunionectomy on my right foot. They cut a v shape and inserted several screws. After a few months I started to experience pain that was very similar to before the surgery. ... (2 replies)

... It took time for me to be able to either at the dinner table with my family. I ate like a sea otter (with a place to on my chest) or a while. At about six weeks, I started trying to sit with my family at dinner, with my ot propped up on a chair and iced. the first few times, I ended up scooters get back to bed. But I kept trying each day.

... Mel, Thank you so much for you update. It is good to hear that you are doing well. I called my primary doctor today to see if she thought I should have my anti depressants increased and she called in a prescription of neurontin for me to see if that helps relieve some of my pain while my foot heals. She said if I get relief which she hopes I do, we will stay on it for a... (14 replies)

... I have (had) extremely bad bunions, and haven't been able to wear anything but heavily padded running shoes for decades. Finally it got to the point where I couldn't even walk in them without pain, and I went in for surgery. My foot doctor said that on a scale of 1-10, my bunions were a 9. On May 16, I had a Lapidus bunionectomy (base of first metatarsal fused with a plate and... (2 replies)

... I too have had this surgery on both feet. They informed me that the swelling would be a couple of months and I would be able to wear normal shoes and even heels by 6 months. This was not the case, I can say that it has took two years for me to feel comfortable in heels (I still prefer not to though to be honest) It also took a while for me to be able to wear certain shoes. ...

... Perhaps I am searching incorrectly but I cannot seem to find a thread on this subject that is recent. I have recently had this surgery (Nov. 22) and am 4 weeks post op. I had a number of things done to my foot as opposed to the standard one or two. The bunion was cut out, and the large toe repositioned using a staple and a pin which will stay in. The second toe was... (1 replies)

... Thanks LO, it helps to hear from others. Last night was pretty painful after I woke myself with an involuntary left leg muscle spasm (like when you dream you've fallen). Ashamed to say I whimpered a lot and it took hours to fall back asleep, though now I'm afraid of doing so too deeply! I've basically had to take half a percocet every 2 hrs when pain resurges. I'm comforted to... (2 replies)
... as you can. The swelling can be super intense early in the recovery and the more you are up, the more swelling you'll have. This is a long recovery but for the bunionectomy you've had 6 months until you start hiking might be possible if you move into healing properly. 6 weeks for the bone to heal. 12 weeks fully. ...

... ul about being up on your knee scooter too much, yes it nwb but your foot is pointed down and not elevated and causes swelling and pain. Which all slows down the healing process. The first few weeks were the hardest usually in the evening id sort of have a panic attack and want to rip off my cast. ... (10 replies)
