Hi. I had bunion surgery 6 weeks 2 days ago. I don't know the name of the surgery my doctor did but he broke my big toe, move it as straight as he could get it, and put a screw in to hold it. My doctor told me i would be non weight bearing for 6 weeks but when he took my stitches out at 2 weeks 5 days post-op, he gave me a referral to start PT 1-2 weeks later. I was able to start partial weight when i started PT. I have been going to PT 2 days a week for about 3 weeks now and i'm pretty much full weight bearing in a walking boot now. I also had no pain when i did put weight on my foot (accidentally) when i was at the stage you are and i have little swelling. That being said all doctors feel differely about the recovery time but you can talk to your doctor about it when you see him or her next week. good luck with the rest of your recovery :)
