... I just had bunion surgery Friday morning as well as hammertoe correction, what they did for me was take out a wedge of my bone in my big toe, put a permanent screw in it to help keep it straight, and then "released" my tendon on my second toe. The surgery itself went fine and way better than I had anticipated. ... (3 replies)

... Random post-op questions...I had an akin-type osteotomy a week ago today, with permanent screw fixation (2 of them).

... Hello! I had a chevron (Austin) bunionectomy for a mild bunion and big toe deformity (it had moved out of joint, but hadn't affected any other toes) back in February.

... I had my surgery on Monday, was out Mon/Tues/Wed/Thurs., and by Friday was so stir crazy I did go back to work.

... Hi! When my pod did my first foot, (1/21/05) he also corrected my toe (broke it, reset it, and I have a permanent screw in it) which made my recovery MUCH longer and really took my a while to be able to push off.

... I am also 11 weeks post op and my foot hurts worse than prior to surgery. I had a bunion removed; big toe cut & straightened with a permanent screw; bone spur removed from top of toe joint. My podiatrist did not send me to a physical therapist and right now, the progress I make is what I do for myself. I try to stretch my toes daily, but they will only move so far. The top...
