... Thanks, Kathy.
A few questions... from your reply: What does NWB mean?
I imagine that the pre-surgery symptoms will disappear slower than the "surgery" symptoms will disappear. The neuritis symptoms (the feel of marbles in a sock) before surgery will slowly disappear? I still feel those symptoms after surgery.
No doubt, I'm getting better. It becomes easier to... (2 replies)

... Hello everyone,
Becoming a Navy SEAL is something I'm very passionate about and have been working towards for several years now. With that said, I just have a medical question that I'd like to get squared away.

... My Bunion surgery was only uncomfortable for two days but I did take pain meds. I also had a pain drip in my foot. You may want to ask about going home with a pain drip if you are unable to take oral meds. What you have to consider is going through two days of pain for a lifetime of comfort depending on how sensitive you are to pain. (2 replies)
... I did ice for much longer than 10 minutes at a time. More like an hour at a time with an hour off. The third day was the worse for me. I called the doctor, I was in so much pain. Any anesthesia/block is long gone. "Walking" at this point will be using your heel for balance. You aren't expected to be on your feet except to go to the bathroom and up for meals.
You will... (6 replies)

... Hey All,
I'm a 25 year old newbie and a little freaked out. I have a bunionette on my left foot that causes me chronic low grade discomfort (I'm a very active runner/ gym junkie).

He made it seem like it was no big deal, but then I got the pre-surgery... (2 replies)
... I keep having to quote the message because I can't remember all the questions. I'll be 3 weeks PO tomorrow and I don't have pain.

... Cortisone into the bursa sac. My doctor said he never does anything like that because it doesn't work. I had pain wearing flip-flops and bare feet on top of when wearing shoes so he said the best thing to do was to fix the mechanical issues. I had significant lateral bowing of my 5th metatarsal. No amount of padding or cortisone can fix that. (53 replies)
