bunion surgery

hi im 23 years old. i had bunion surgery on my left foot january 26th, six weeks ago. i just started walking yesterday. however when i walk i have a limp. i don't know if i should do physical therapy or if this will just stop with time. my doctor says I'm right on schedule with healing. i go back to work next week, where i am on my feet all day. i am going back two days a week rather than five. my doctor says I'm still swollen and should elevate my foot whenever possible at home. and i know i will have swelling by end of a working day and doctor says i should elevate it and that i may be uncomfortable. i don't know if i should call and ask my doctor to go for physical therapy or to just stick this out and just try and do it myself at home.

Re: bunion surgery

I had a bunion surgery in March. I was 2 weeks non weight bearing, 2 weeks in a walking boot, and then went right into wearing sneakers and doing physical therapy. When I was at 6 weeks out, I was in physical therapy and wasn't in terrible pain. You might want to try it out and see if it helps! I think it definitely helped me. I now have almost full mobility back and it rarely hurts. Even if you only go to therapy a couple of times they can give you exercises to do at home.

I know your post was from a while ago, but I thought I'd answer anyway and see how you're doing now??
