... I guess a wire is similar to a pin. He said they are easier to remove than screws, if they ever need to be taken out, due to irritation I guess. He has encouraged me to move the toe, but he also said it takes 8+ weeks for bone to heal and fuse. How aggressively did you bend your toe/incision area, post op and how long did you do PT? Is your foot still stiff or is it like... (7 replies)
... Of course the first day in the sneaker was a little tight but after that each day got remarkably better. I'm 12 weeks now and except for a little ankle swelling I think I'm doing great. No pain at all. ... (2 replies)
... I also still cannot move my big toe. Two weeks ago the dr said he might send me for PT to increase range of motion but he wasn't ready for anyone to start "playing with it yet". ... (5 replies)

... Hi again Marathon 50 - glad your surgery is behind you and you are on the road to recovery. Not overdoing is the most crucial. I'm 7 1/2 weeks post op and just started walking in my air boot without crutches and even that can be exhausting! Please have your doctor check the height of your crutches when you go in tomorrow. They should not be hurting your underarms - in fact... (3 replies)
... Thanks Prin - it's nice to hear from a "veteran". I knew my recovery would be slow (the dr initially said 6-8 weeks in a hard cast). I now have the air boot walker which helps but it is so heavy! At least I can put my foot down and I'm not weight bearing. I kind of thought I would be off the crutches at this point (2 1/2 weeks) but no such luck. At least 2 more weeks. I... (19 replies)
... capability as quickly as possible. I am 4 weeks post op. I've been back to work for two weeks. I've had some good and bad days. ... (17 replies)
... week for 8 weeks. ... (8 replies)
... It will be great if your surgery won't be so involved as your first. The total NWB for 8 weeks must be just awful! ... (20 replies)
... It's been two weeks since my surgery - about the same as you, a pin and two screws, on crutches, throbs when it's not elevated - it's all normal. It's driving me crazy too, but bone takes 6-8 weeks to heal; I don't expect to put weight on my foot (at all) for another month or more. It's tough, but you have to be patient. So many people have multiple surgeries - I'd rather... (30 replies)
... At 6 weeks I was still trying to keep my foot elevated most of the time since swelling was still a big issue. ... (1 replies)
... If you have no infection, you're in good shape. I started feeling better by 6 weeks and much better by 8 weeks. ... (9 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...

... HI, Thanks, I was just curious. It will be 5 weeks when I go back so that isn't bad. My husband kept saying my doctor was over protective but I didn't think so. ... (22 replies)
... n't get up much because the day before I had over done it and had trouble sleeping at night. During the day, I kept my foot up whenever I was sitting down. At 8 months after surgery at the end of a long day, I still elevate the foot 90 degrees in the evening and put an ice pack on it when it has swelled. ... (10 replies)
... I think once you're allowed to get your foot wet you can start using lotions and oils. I actually didn't start putting anything on my foot till 6 or 8 weeks later because I was grossed out by my foot and afraid to touch it. ... (3 replies)
... One day at a time...that's been my mantra for the last 8 weeks. Hope you're feeling better soon. ... (8 replies)
... amazing. How much longer do you have off from work and when do you plan on returning. I am assuming you were off the entire 8 weeks and had help recovering. How does one do crutches with both feet out of commission? ... (7 replies)
... Being nwb and having to keep my foot elevated and sitting reclined for the last 8 weeks has been the worse part of the recovery. ... (10 replies)
... go crooked. My foot looks and feels like I never had the bunion removed and it has been over 3 months now. The other foot looks fine and has less pain. I am 3 weeks post op on that one. ... (4 replies)
... I just got home from a doctors appt. My pod says the very earliest he will let me try to walk is 8 weeks. He really wanted me to wait for 10 weeks but i am really need to get back on my feet...I have 3 kids and am going batty! Hope that helps! Good luck to you. ... (12 replies)
