hi. sorry it took me so long to post again...how are you doing?
i had a bunionectomy (my doctor just referred to it as "the more aggressive" surgery) where they remove the bunion and break the first metatarsal, use the break like a hinge to swing the bone into place and then put a pin in to hold it there. i had the surgery in january and i'm finally getting back to normal now. i started running again last week (which was really nice!) and it doesn't really hurt, but i can tell if i do too much because it will still swell and get a little sore. i still haven't tried to wear heels or anything like that. i've been going to the gym and using weights and bike, but i haven't done any aerobics. i am playing softball though and so far so good!
how is your second recovery? any better? it's amazing how long it takes before you get back to normal, isn't it? it took me a long while to even walk normally once i finally got off crutches! (there were many jokes around the office about my gimp!)
hope you're doing well!
