akin bunionectomy, recovery and exercise

i am scheduled for an akin bunionectomy in january.

i am very active and hate the idea of not being able to exercise. in general i feel the need to get some good exercise almost every day.

currently i swim almost every day. i also love yoga, but any kind of exercise is welcome.

do you know how soon i will be able to return to swimming or other forms of exercise after the procedure?

thank you

Re: akin bunionectomy, recovery and exercise

I had my bunionectomy (right foot only, with permanent screws) on November 2. Was given the go ahead yesterday to resume very low-impact exercise (yoga, elliptical trainer, stationary bike, swimming. . . ) I can resume dance classes in January (if all goes well, I am currently doing physical therapy to help improve my range of motion).

I thought i would be itching to exercise during that time "off" -- but I didnt, as any time I unelevated my foot it became very uncomfortable.

good luck!
