... I had a Lapidus bunionectomy on June 27th (3 months post op). I had the first metatarsal joint fused with two permanent screws and I had the big toe joint cut and repositioned with two pins which were removed at 7 weeks. I was non weight bearing for seven weeks (hard cast and crutches) and was out of work for the first three weeks (I had a desk job). After seven weeks I... (7 replies)
... I had an Austin bunionectomy last October. I had a pin, no screw, which was removed at 6 months. I wore the velcro shoe for 24 days, then a sneaker, then a loose shoe. ... (7 replies)
... My surgery sounds similar so similar to yours, with the exception of the spur removal. My bunionectomy was August 4th and I too, returned to work at 5 weeks. Fortunately, I have an office job where I can prop my foot up most of the day. ... (7 replies)

... Wanted to find out what the differences or similarities were out there. Could you list the: 1) type of surgery you had and if you had screws placed 2) if you were placed in a cast or boot and for how long w or w/o weight bearing during that time, and 3) how much time you took off before you went back to work - esp if you had minimal walking and a desk job (did you...

... I found that orthotics helped me after surgery. It seems to take the pressure off of the forefoot. Apparently, a lot of folks with bunions also have flat feet; that's not the case with me. Maybe a higher arch puts a little more pressure on the front of my foot. For me, a lot depends on the shoe. I have some shoes or boots that I'll keep a little support in even now (not... (6 replies)
... I haven't had either exact procedure but a couple of others that are similar on both big toe joints. Neither had hardware. For me, both times I could put my heel down to get to the bathroom on crutches, etc. Was without crutches by a week out. Last one I had (called a cheilectomy with osteotomy) was in mid June and I was at a dance in ankle cut cowboy boots about 7 weeks... (6 replies)
... My stitches are under the skin and dissolvable so no removal required. Incision is closed with some gel type thing that he said is used to close facelifts. ... (0 replies)
... ained that doing minimally invasive surgery does take more time and effort to learn and while there was a select group of podiatrists and orthopedists doing this type of surgery they were not easy to find. ... (0 replies)
... I think the recovery time and pain involved is directly related on the exact type of bunionectly you have. If your Dr allowed you to bear weight that soon, I doubt that you would have done any "damage" by walking on it. ... (2 replies)
... I had bilateral 1st metatarsal osteotomies (double bunionectomy) the day before Thanksgiving. I had general anesthesia with ankle blocks and outpatient surgery. My surgery was around 11:30 and I was home eating soup by 2:00. The day of surgery I felt pretty darn good, obviously because of the blocks. I started pain & anti-nausea meds that evening. I took the meds on a strict... (35 replies)
... I have two long pins in my second toe with a screw, and 4 other screws for the bunionectomy and bunionette. Has anyone experienced this type of pulling? ... (3 replies)
... I have been reading comments from others about this type of surgery before and after my surgery. ... (0 replies)
... an ortho center in St. Louis that is affiliated with a medical school. All ortho dr's there go through extra training in their specialized area. This is the ONLY type of surgeon I would use. ... (6 replies)
... I had a lapidus bunionectomy two weeks ago and had a traditional splint cast for two weeks, which really was pretty comfortable. ... (0 replies)
... Hi, I'm a 52 year old female scheduled for surgery on my left foot. I'm concerned about the type of cast for instance - how far up on the foot does it go & what is it made of. I'm getting nervous & don't know if I even want to see the dr for the final visit to wait & ask these questions. I have 5 steps to go up to get into my house & he told me I can't bear any weight for 6-8... (3 replies)
... I think some Doctors believe in therapy and some think you can get there on your own. Not knowing what type of surgery you had, I would say 3 weeks is quick to expect to have much range of motion. ... (4 replies)
... they did the trick and cleared up the infection which was swabbed and cultured as a staphylococcus aureus infection. You will hopefully find out soon what exact type of infection you have so they can target it with the right antibiotic fit for it. ... (5 replies)
... I understand your frustration so well as I had a bunionectomy and 2nd metatarsal osteotomy 4 months ago and I am STILL not able to weight bear! Like yourself, I got an infection and it burst the incisions open. ... (5 replies)
... It seems every ortho surgeon does this surgery a bit different. I guess it depends on the type of fixation. I have two screws in each ft. ... (12 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)
