... I had a double bunionectomy and (double) hammertoe surgery in mid May of 2006-- The hammertoes just healed along with the bunions; I had no pins or special instructions that were different from what I was told to do for the bunion surgery recovery. My stitches were dissolvable. I wore non-flexible velcro-fastened surgical sandals for two weeks; no boots, casts, crutches, etc.... (25 replies)

... I walked to the bathroom wearing my surgical sandals while I was still in the Recovery Room immediately following my double bunionectomy & hammertoes surgery. (It was right across the room.) My bathroom at home is also right next to my bedroom and I was able to go there myself too. My husband was more freaked out than me-- He insisted on helping me the first day or two, but it...

... I'm scheduled for Jan 2 to have the double bunionectomy. My Dr. never flinched when I said I wanted them both at once. One of the main reasons is that 50% off the second one. Also the outpatient surgical center (non-hospital) has a discount for the 2nd foot. I have no health insurance (self employed with preexisting...can't get it). The 2 are only going to cost a little... (25 replies)

... e at St. Paul's hospital in Vancouver. They have a great Foot and Ankle Clinic there, my surgeon was Dr. Allistair Younger, he is the head of the foot and ankle surgical unit.

Bunions for life?
Jun 21, 2006
... Moondance & Lizzy: You are both very right. I'm sure the recurrence rate is very low, and that even if it does recur after 20 years, those 20 years will be better lived compared to going on with this pain, and who knows even at that point there might be much better surgical techniques for 2nd-time surgeries. It's also right to think that many people who come on here have... (10 replies)
... Yep - I had C-sections with both of my kids :rolleyes: and have had 3 foot surgeries now - 2 bunion surgeries in college (20+ years ago), and now, more recently, a mid-foot fusion (Lapidus procedure, 2 screws) - to correct splayed 1st metatarsal, along with Wiel osteotomy on 2nd metatarsal (another screw), and bunion shaved, as well as additional (4th) screw placed at base of...

... Where do you get toe seperators, I would think they would crowd your toe even more. (4 replies)
... if your bunions are not very progressed, then a combination of orthotics and toe seperators can slow it down and minimize pain. The way my feet are I have to have surgery.. ... (4 replies)
... I have been seeing a physical therapist who seems to think I can deal with my bunions without surgery. Did any of you look into that as a means of treatment? ... (4 replies)
... Hi everyone. I've gotten a great deal of help on different issues on the Healthboards, so I thought I see what I can glean from you all in regard to my bunions. I was told about 10 years ago that I needed surgery, but I wasn't then, not am I now in a position to do the surgery. They got a little better on their own by being a lot more careful about the shoes I wore, but... (0 replies)
... Hi, Sorry I can't comment on this diagnosis or the proposed surgery from personal experience, but I do know that with greater degrees of angulation you wind up needing more aggressive types of bunion surgery. I had a 14 degree angle bunion, that was "just on the cusp" of needing either a simple v-notch bunionectomy (cut in distal end of metatarsal, with two permanent screws,... (2 replies)
