Hi all(:
I've recently discovered this site so I thought I'd give it a try!
I'm 15 years old & I had bunion surgery on my left foot on May 24th. I've had bunions for quite a while thanks to my dad's side of the family!
Anyways, I'm 3 weeks post-op and I find that I can walk almost completely normally without the help of crutches or my velcro sandal. I've been walking around with my foot in bandages & I can also walk without the bandages.
Is this at all normal? I've read a lot about people that can't walk normally until they're two months post-op. And that has me wondering whether I'm just healing quickly or am putting too much weight on my foot..
I got my stitches taken out last Thursday and the doctor told me that I could walk around on my heel as tolerated. And yet I'm walking about 90% normally, but I'm still not putting all my weight on the ball of my foot.
Should I continue walking as I am? Or could this possibly impact my healing time in the long run?
Just wondering what you guys' experiences are with this and any advice is appreciated!
