... 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.

... I was not allowed to drive until the pins were out of the hammertoes - that was 6 weeks. I snuck in a trip to the gas station around the corner twice though. As for the pins and needles - I've had plantar faciitis and it's usually almost a cutting pain on the front side of the heal. I have had a lot of intermittant pins and needles feelings in my feet. This according to the... (41 replies)
... Hi Delightful, Don't despair! I think most of us would agree that the first few weeks are the worst after bunion surgery. I'm now at 8 weeks (and four days!) post-op. Like you I had my stitches out at two weeks and then I was on crutches and only weight bearing on my heel for another month, after which I had the external pin removed and was referred for physio. I've... (41 replies)
... Hey guys! 2 weeks post-op on 11-19. Went back to work this week and its been going really well.

... Hi Beetroot, You had exactly what Pearl66 had, so she should be able to shed some lights on that for you. That sounds like an Akin issue which I didn't have. I only had bilateral Scarfs. Have you talked to your doctor about this? He/She probably knows best as to why your big toe is sticking up and what can be done to help it to be at normal position. Are you doing any... (97 replies)
