... Hi, As others have said, you first need to find out from your podiatrist if you need to have a simple bunionectomy (just shaving off the bone that sticks out) or a moderate or severe bunionectomy. My bunion was severe and I am way older than you, and so I had to have the big surgery which I can tell you about if you have to go that route. The sooner you can take care of this... (8 replies)
... 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'm finally wearing "cute shoes" again comfortably (though not long distances!) now. So, I had a mild to moderate (ie: only 1 toe involved, Chevron osteotomy with permanent screw) bunion, and I was immobile... (8 replies)

... Hi, Becky~ I'm sorry that I don't have time to write much now, but I recommend you do a search on the HealthBoards site for two threads titled "Double Bunionectomy Questions" (There are two because the first one got too long and was closed, so a second one was started.) - I had surgery for bunions and hammertoes done on both my feet in May. I have to say that the comments on... (5 replies)
... Hi, Akitalyr~ I can only talk about the experience of doing both feet at once. I had mine done in mid-May. Most doctors are not enthusiastic about doing double bunionectomies; I think partly because they fear that their patients will not follow through in the necessary steps—or in this case, lack of them—for recovery. I promised to be good and was, but it required careful... (8 replies)

... I am 6 wks post austin bunionectomy, complete with pin. I still have quite a bit of pain and swelling, but I know the swelling is normal. The pain, in the affected joint area and in the bottom of my foot, however, still requires 600 mg advil at least 3x a day. I've done everything I'm supposed to, worn the boot 24/7, worn the toe splint to keep it straight while it heals,... (0 replies)
