... Hi, wmkcolors~ I was never totally NWB, so regaining strength was not as big an issue for me. (Following a double bunionectomy, I was very minimally weight-bearing for two weeks, after which I started walking more and more.) Within six months of the surgery, I can say that I not only felt truly normal, but WAY better than I did when I was suffering from the bunions. My only... (4 replies)
... Hi Marjorie, I had both bunions on each foot removed a year apart from each other. This was 20 years ago, so I don't remember the type. I did have screws. ... (22 replies)

... Yes. To me the pain under the ball of the foot sounds like a neuroma. (I've had both that and bunions-- Had bunion surgery a year ago.) The toe-pulling/popping thing sounds strange... What does your physical therapist say about it? Do you use orthodics? (5 replies)

... hi happy mom :) glad to hear that you're able to play tennis at 4 months~ i also had a (almost) double bunionectomy (they were two weeks apart) and it's been about 4 wks and 6 wks respectively. just out of curiosity, do you remember what stage you were at around 6-8 weeks postop? i know it's probably hard since i even have trouble remembering where i was at just a week...

... rays while I was there. I talked to the nurse later on the phone and expressed my concern that this was not a tailor's bunion, since tailor's bunions are on the side of the foot and the hardened area is more on the bottom of my foot. ... (3 replies)
Double Bunionette

... I've never had bunions at my big toes, only my little toes so I can't really compare. I do know that both the doctor and anesthesiologist warned that "these can be quite sore. ... (53 replies)

... Fortunately, I'm taking care of this early, so the procedure will be simple and quick (a half hour per foot). The doctor will be cutting a bone in my big toe and realigning it (the bunions are not big enough to have to cut off - and the first doctor I saw mentioned something about not needing any work on my soft tissue, either...). There appears to be no agreement - even... (42 replies)
... I had one foot Austin chevron osteotomy w/bumpectomy, tendon release, absorbable sutures, and pin that was removed at 4 wks postop I have a few completely unofficial theories about bunion surgery (from other posts and my online research) 1. bumpectomies - apparently just shave off the bump This was offered to me by one podiatrist that was recommended to me by someone I...

I had subcuticular stitches - much better cosmetic result than the regular kind supposedly. I do have a lot of extra scar tissue where the pin was; my doctor said it was the most she has ever seen (great, yeah); the pin was really... (8 replies)
... I've sort of fixed my problem (I think), I put pressure on the bulge that was the reforming bunion deformity and literally felt the bone move back into straight alignment, and it looks a lot straighter too. My Dr would probably kill me but it looks a lot better. I am getting a follow up xray next week so we'll see. At this point the bones are fine (after shaving the bump and... (0 replies)
