... on both sides, with temporary pins to keep the bones in place while healing. Did you have osteotomy, or the bunions "shaved"? ... (2 replies)
... I don't know what "minimal" incision means, but I had double bunion surgery nearly 5 weeks ago and was walking immediately after surgery. They shaved my bunion and did an osteotomy on both metatarsals (scarf bunionectomy.) Granted, the first 3 days, I was on the couch and elevating as much as possible while popping some painkillers, but honestly, day 2 was the only really... (7 replies)
... My daughter and I live in the western part of Mass (Mohawk Trail Area) her Dr is an Orthopedic Surgeon. I kind of looked like he had taken all of it off when she first was able to look at it, but within a short amount of time you could see it was coming back. Now it is bigger than the original and the original was quite large. She has gone to a Podiatrist that would like to... (6 replies)

... was too conservative in how much of the bony protrusion was shaved off. I am concerned that over time the bunion will come back as what is left may be agitated by shoes. ... (6 replies)
... ly a temporary solution at best, it does not correct the underlying structural issue at hand that caused the bunion in the first place. Those who have had their bunions shaved in the past, have been back for more surgery and have more problems. My theory, if you are going to get it fixed, get it fixed right the first time. ...

... big toe which I think must be where the screws are located. The incision is a little raised and reddened there. The side of the foot where the bunion bone was shaved off is still painful, and the nerves in the surgery area must be irritated because I have some numbness and tingling sensations at times. ...

... I am sorry for your predicament. I'm confused on exactly what your problem was and what he did. At its simplest, aa bunion is a malformation of the toe so that it turns in and the joint is at a "v" on the outside of the foot...the bones being at a sort of angle rather than straight from the foot thru the toe. While some of that can be shaved off, severe ones have to be cut... (6 replies)
... I am assuming they either shaved or cut the bunions. Not sure about cutting the bone through. I had a bunion on the big toe towards the top of the toe and had a metatarsal bunion. ... (4 replies)

... Debbie, Six months ago I had surgery on the MPJ where they cleaned out the joint, straightened the large toe and shaped the area where bunions usually exist, (I had no pain there but the doc felt it needed shaved). In addition to a screw in the large toe, a pin was put in, somewhat in the shape of a golf club or a wig pin in the shape of an L instead of a T. This pin was... (85 replies)

Also as in bilateral bunionectomies (having both bunions removed at same time), bilateral cheilectomies (having both great toes cleaned and shaved at the same time), etc. Bilateral is both as opposed...
