I had a similar procedure to monsterbunion because i had a sever bunion on my right foot (around 18 degrees i think). I had a lapidus bunionectomy/osteotomy and 2 hammertoe corrections. I was on crutches for 6 weeks. First 2 weeks I had a plaster type cast and last 4 i had an air cast. After x rays at the 6 week mark my Pod said I was okay to bear weight. I walked with the same air cast for 2 weeks and then wore a surgical boot for about 2 more weeks. I had surgery in April and I'm still in physical therapy but otherwise pretty much back to normal. Still have some issues with dancing and running but very minimal. The doctor will tell you the recovery time is about 6 weeks but I'm sure you can tell from the boards that it takes a few months if not a year to get fully back to normal. I still have a little bit of swelling in my foot and thus can't wear heels for another month or too.

Like monsterbunion said, feel free to ask as many questions as you need to! I wish I had found this forum prior to my surgery but having found it afterwards it's been a tremendous resource for help answering my questions and knowing i'm not the only one going through this.
