... Hi there, I have been lurking here as well as my teenage daughter is having a bilateral scarf/akin osteotomy for juvenile bunions.

... Thanks! I get the bandages off in a weeks time (2weeks post op) so I guess I'll leave it until then and see how I go. At the moment it feels as though I won't be able to bear any weight on the balls of my feet any time soon as it's very painful. (40 replies)

... Hi Aimski, Thanks for your reply! It's helped a lot. There are so many horror stories about people's surgery which didn't turn out as planned and that was freaking me out.
