... Chevron Bunionectomy on my right foot in 3 weeks. My question is... ... (1 replies)
... Hi All, I am thinking of having my 2nd foot done in March or April and my dr said he would use the austin/chevron procedure. To give you some background, I had a severe bunion on my right foot and had a base wedge osteotomy on that foot last April. I was on crutches for 6 weeks and all that jazz. My right foot is just about back to normal now with a little bit of... (14 replies)
... Heya, Dancergal! You would probably be happy with an Austin/chevron, though I found that I was also in the surgical shoe for 4 weeks, not for 2. However, I was mostly off crutches after 2 weeks (though I kept them for longer distances), and I was back at work on the 4th day after my surgery - I just kept my leg up on my desk, with ice on the foot, and that kept the pain and...

... I know it varies person to person, but I was hoping people could give me an idea of how long the swelling lasts with this procedure. I'm trying to decide when I want to have it done (probably in the spring) and wanted to get an estimate of how long I'll be wearing wide shoes. I am only having one foot done because I had the other foot done last April and the swelling lasted... (0 replies)
... Thank you soo much for your reply! - my surgery is Tuesday and I don't even know what time I should arrive for 11:30 procedure - I'm giving til Monday morning to call me with info. Isn't that a bit . . . unusual? (14 replies)

... I am thinking of having the austin bunionectomy done on both feet - can anyone tell me what anesthetic is used for this surgery? and how long I can expect to be "laid up"? getting anxious! (14 replies)
... pelly, went to this doctor in Syracuse. Seems to think I have capsulitis in that second metatarsal. I have to return next week to discuss surgery. He said the Austin procedure should work fine. He said my second metatarsal is long and he has to shorten it. ... (14 replies)
... I had the Austin procedure for pretty significant bunions; my surgery was about 20 months ago. I also had a lot of pain in the balls of my feet, one more than the other. It was diagnosed many, many years ago as Morton's neuroma-- and had been bothering me for much longer than the bunions. It was not constant and I coped with it by using orthodics which took the pressure off of... (14 replies)
... JCPelly, I am going to see another podiatrist in Syracuse, New York for another opinion. Do you think the Austin procedure is enough for a 13 degree bunion? ... (14 replies)
... Much depends on your particular situation and doctor's instructions (Will you have a cast? boot? How soon can you start walking?), but I would think you should definitely be able to travel with your husband. You might want to request a bulkhead seat so you'd have room to elevate your foot, but at 7-8 weeks you should be fine without that being a necessity for a cross-country... (1 replies)
... I'm 3 months post op (Austin chevron Bunionectomy on right foot) and need to start buying new shoes for work. Any recommendations for stylish shoes with roomy toe box other than Dansko? (1 replies)

... Akin bunionectomy two weeks ago. I think that's a lot of money for something you can do yourself. I don't have any experience with it so I don't know the benefits. ... (2 replies)
... I had one foot Austin chevron osteotomy w/bumpectomy, tendon release, absorbable sutures, and pin that was removed at 4 wks postop I have a few completely unofficial theories about bunion surgery (from other posts and my online research) 1. bumpectomies - apparently just shave off the bump This was offered to me by one podiatrist that was recommended to me by someone I...

... I had an austin/chevron procedure on January 9th, which was a Wednesday and returned Monday, the 21st - about eleven days off. I have a desk job and at times could elevate my foot on top of my desk but that does make it a little difficult to work. After about a week or so back to work I actually hit the top of my foot (where the screw is located) on the under side of my desk... (2 replies)
... I had a double Austin or Chevron bunionectomy on June 4th, 2012. It's been 3 weeks today, and I just wanted to share my experience with anyone looking for more information. ... (0 replies)
... Dancergal, I don't want to take advantage of someone else's thread, but I rarely see you on this board. I am 5 1/2 months postop, with a similar bunionectomy to yours, an austin/akin procedure, with my big toe cut and the bone below it. I have full ROM, but now that I'm walking more, I have alot of pain on the ball of my foot and into my arch. Did you experience this? ... (6 replies)
... essentially a chevron osteotomy. My pod didn't send me to PT, but showed me ROM exercises to do. ... (16 replies)
... I didn't have a hammertoe with my other bunionectomy so this a little different for me. Since I'm adding a toe that goes under the KNIFE, will that INCREASE my pain? ... (1 replies)
