[QUOTE=bunionfeet;5013404]I returned to work 4 days after surgery. Job requires lots of walking. Wore a soft boot for 6 weeks. Doc says bones have healed. 2 screws were installed. 8 wks post op scar and bunion site still very tender. Foot goes numb when wearing socks /sneakers. Foot is darker color than the other foot. Have intermittent numbness. What can I do to speed up healing? Need surgery on right foot. How long should I wait?[/QUOTE]
