... Hi...I'm preparing to have my flat foot reconstruction with a Lapidus bunionectomy. I had my left foot done 4 yrs ago. At that time, I had a horrible time getting up two steps from my garage into the house when we got home a few hours after I had the surgery. It took me 30 mins to figure out how to get in the house. I had a numb leg and foot, anesthesia washout still... (5 replies)

... Has anyone ever heard of a toe "collapsing"? I had surgery last May to correct complications from a bunionectomy. That was the last of three surgeries. The first surgery, the bunionectomy, was about 6 years ago. But, there was a big space between my big toe and the second toe, which has always affected my gait. I returned to the podiatrist to complain about my condition, and... (1 replies)

I am 6 months post op from Flat Foot Reconstruction, Gastroc Recession and Lapidus Bunionectomy. I am experiencing a lot of pain under my big toe and it feels like my first metatarseal is too low.

... I'd still need more information, if it was me. Many people overpronate. There are syles of shoes that compensate for that. As for the pain in the ball of your foot, one would expect that to happen if you need a bunionectomy. And flat shoes in general are not all good for your feet. What you need is some that are supportive and have a sturdy sole - not a ballet flat. (6 replies)

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)
