... Hi Profmia: Your posting said you had a bunion removal 2 years ago for your left foot, was this operation for your R foot a lot different in operation procedure than the L foot?

It has been just past 4 months... (41 replies)
... I had surgery performed by a podiatrist and am very happy with the result. I had bunion and bunionette surgery on the right foot with osteotomies and temporary pins.

... I am near full weight bearing. Am doing partial weight bearing for these 2 weeks. Right now it is difficult to imagine standing on it normally.

... 3/31/05 Update: Hi, Itís been 5 weeks since my surgery, and the podiatrist cut my cast into two pieces when he removed it today. Things are progressing on schedule, and my x-rays show that the bone is healing okay. I still cannot put weight on my foot for another 3-4 weeks. Much to my surprise, the doctor brought the two pieces of my cast back to me after having lined... (16 replies)

Bunion Surgery
Jul 1, 2004
... Hi, I am glad to know you're starting to feel better. It sounds like you did have a different type of bunionectomy from me--I only had what's called a "V-incision" bunionectomy, maybe also called a "Chevron" procedure--with permanent screws.
