bunion surgery with pins recovery with boot

Hi guys,

I have a question for those of you who used a bunion boot after surgery-

I had a bunion removed (shaved/broken toe and realigned with a permanent plate and pin inserted) about 4 weeks ago. I used crutches for the first 3 weeks but now am able to walk on my heel. I ordered a 'bunion boot' from the US- as here, in the east coast of Canada they only wrap up the foot and finding this boot was very difficult- So I was wondering if any of you wore this boot while having the pins in your foot? It comes with a sock that separates the big toe from the rest of the toes and i feel if i put it on it will cause a lot of pressure on the pin...is this this okay? has anyone else used this boot in recovery? My doctor said it's okay to wear the boot or i could cut the front of and old shoe and walk on that with my heel....no one around here really knows what a bunion boot is and i am assuming the doctor thought of it as a generic cam/walk boot (although the 2 are very similar in structure) :P

any help would be appreciated...
