... Hi, I am going on a trip Sat. and I still have a metal plate in my foot from my bunionectomy, which I had done on Jan. 8.

... Having been through a much less intensive surgery just a month ago, I don't think you are going to be comfortable flying so soon after having so much work done. Do discuss this with your doctor, but I think you will be much more comfortable waiting for a few weeks. ... (7 replies)
... After talar osteophyte excision, I flew 3 days later. The flight was only an hour and a half, I flew with my mom, and I purchased an extra seat so I could keep my foot up. The extra seat was the only way the surgeon agreed to flying. My poor mom had my toes in her face the entire trip.

... I had a similar procedure to you last year, and I was essentially in bed on my back for the first 2-3 weeks. If you are talking just 9 days post-op, I don't think you will want to fly. Forgetting the pressure changes with flying, just trying to be up long enough to navigate the airport, and getting through security and such is going to be a huge undertaking. (7 replies)
... if you are 9 weeks out then really your biggest hurdle will be all the walking through the airport. It's possible you may be able to get wheelchair assistance, but I would say unless you REALLY need it, that it's probably more trouble than it's worth. How long is your flight? As for flying, I just flew to Hawaii in May and missed the worst of the nightmares by about two... (10 replies)
... I agree with the previous poster. . . I think it would be rough going. At two weeks post-op I wasnt even comfortable sitting on the sofa half the time, I cant imagine flying. If you DO opt to do it, try to arange some way that you can keep you foot elevated. You will NOt want to have it "down" for any length of time. . . good luck! (5 replies)

It just seems a bit too soon to fly due to the fact that it doesn't sound like a minor surgery and you probably need to settle down a bit and get comfortable. Personally, I flew after 3 weeks post bilateral bunionectomy. ... (7 replies)
