... Hi everyone. I'm new to the foot problems board. I've mostly been over on the Alzheimer's board (my Mother-In-Law passed away from Alz. on November 2nd :(). I'm scheduled for a chevron bunionectomy & endoscopic plantar fasciotomy at 7:30 tomorrow morning and am really nervous. I have no idea about what kind of pain to expect afterwards. I'm going to be totally off of my... (14 replies)
... I am 3 weeks post surgery. I am an RN and on my feet the entire 8 hour shift. My podiatrist thought 4 weeks might be a long enough recovery, but he will let me be the judge. For others who have had this surgery, and have a standing walking job, how long have you taken off of work. I am thinking more like 6 weeks might be good. I am up to walking 30 minutes, but still...

... I go back to the Dr. tomorrow and have my bandage taken off. I think they just tape it now. I have to go in for the next month once a week. I know they cut the tendon on the inside of my big toe. Does anyone know what happens to the tendon? Does it just adhere to a new area? I'm going to check tomorrow. I'm feeling pretty good and am off the pain meds as of today. I... (13 replies)
... Hi Lisa, I'm glad you're feeling better. I'm having surgery in the morning (chevron bunionectomy & endoscopic plantar fasciotomy) & reading your posts has really helped me to "gear up" mentally.

... ber. You cant even see a scar! I wasnt working in a week though. 5 weeks before I was back to work. I stand on my feet for 8 hours a day maybe that is why. The surgery was virtually pain free. It was worth it. Esp. since i could no longer walk at all by the time I had the surgery. I too had tried everything! ... (9 replies)
... I had surgery on both feet 6-01 for heel spurs. The spurs are no problem now, but I still have alot of pain, especially the right foot. I have been wearing prx. orthodics for two months. My right ankle hurts all the time and makes a loud clicking sound when flexing it. Had more cortisone injections last week. Helped two days only! My Dr. says I have some scarring but has...

... Hi! I am a week postop and doing well. I did not go back to work in two days - more like 8 days. I was able to put a sneaker on yesterday and today I've been wearing them all day. I won't get stitches out until 1/26. Two on each side of foot. My one worry is that the main tendon for support has been cut. Although the pain is relieved I still can't help thinking that I'll rip... (9 replies)
