Re: Concern over my x ray - non union??
Look up my posts from 2008. I had bunion and tailor's bunion surgery on my right foot, with osteotomies and pins for either side. At two and a half months post-op I went to my pcp because I had a slight bone spur, right under the skin. He ordered x-rays and then told me I had a bigger problem, that my fifth metatarsal was still broken. It sure looked like it on the x-ray and I was beside myself. I flew off the next day to my 30th High School reunion, but my pcp contacted my pod, who called me and said the x-ray looked on target, and that the bone was mending, Oy! The bone did mend, but I think it can take a few months. I was walking two miles a day then, and he told me to wait until I was 4 months post-op. I'm doing great now, and will be having the same procedure done on my other foot in another year or so (combined with a cheilectomy due to arthritis in the big toe joint). Hang in there and don't despair. Keep elevating when needed and don't over do.
