In almost 100% of bilateral bunions surgeries, including lapidus, one foot will feel better faster than the other. This is because no two surgeries are exactly the same and weight distribution is never even between both sides. Pain in the ball of the foot is not uncommon because most lapidus procedures will also have soft tissue releases at the head of the metatarsal.

In the big picture, a typical lapidus procedure can take 4 months or more until normal activities are resumed. Since you are only 6 weeks out, I wouldn't worry too much about the different pains you are having especially since you just started bearing weight. It is way too early to know the ultimate outcome of your surgery. After any surgery you will have good days and bad days. Just stick with it.
