... It has been a very long journey for me. In April 2016 I had surgery #2 to remove all the hardware and move my heel back over to neutral as the first surgeon messed up my foot. Then in October 2016 I had surgery #3 to remove the screws from my second surgery and elevate my second metatarsal. Right now I am walking on the outside of my foot as my foot was way overcorrected... (14 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)
... Greetings Hotdog Girl: Thanks for your reply and well wishes. Actually, your response contributed to changing my mood from worried to being a bit more optimistic :-). My left foot surgery some yrs. back was totally different and done by an excellent podiatrist. Recovery as I remember was about two months. I had no wt. bearing probs and went from the half open toe walking... (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)
... ay be due to the bundled up for the past 10 days. I hope this is also a sign of recovery. I no longer need to ice the foot that much nowadays compares to the 1st post op week. Just very occasionally if I had my foot down for longer down than expected. ... (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)
... Hi Delightfuldior, so glad to hear a reply as a new member myself! It does encourages me a lot to have such on-line community support during these tough weeks :) Your photos are looking good, I have to say, you're definitely on the road to full recovery, and your toes look straight and nice. I really believe it is just a matter of time for you to get the full bounds back in... (41 replies)
... Hi, 3 days ago I had a minimally-invasive/ chevron bunion op. with pins and 3 screws put into each foot. The pre op and op itself were fine with little or no pain or bleeding after theatre. I did find lying relatively still on the trolley for 4 hours after surgery (whilst BP, O2 levels monitored) afterwards difficult but I was simply keen to go home. Discharged on paracetamol...

... I had my surgery 2 weeks ago and it's been a cake walk. I had one incision on the top of my toe and I had a pin placed where the bone was cut. I went home with a pain med. drip into the incision area for three days. After that I started heel walking. For the first few days of heel walking I felt pain on the top of my foot, but only on the first step I took. It would work... (41 replies)
... Here's how things went for me. Bunionectomy with 2 v-cuts/3 screws in right great toe, 1 v-cut/2 screws in left great toe. Hammertoes/second toes were shorted slightly in order to straighten then. Second joint in second toes fused. Pins/k wires in both second toes. Nov 29, walked out of outpatient surgery with HUGE bandages and surgical walking shoes on both toes. December... (41 replies)
... 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)
... I had both feet done at once this past November 29th. Bunionectomy on the great toes and Hammertoe surgery with pins in the second toes. ... (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)
... I had my op two weeks ago on left foot. I had two incisions a small one at the top and a very large on on the side where the bunion was. I had morphine whilst in hospital then was prescribed Diflofenac, Tramadol and Paracetomol on discharge. I had to stop the Anti inflams as I reacted badly and I'm still getting tummy ache every time I eat. I take Tramadol at night and it... (41 replies)
