In Reply to: BUNION SURGERY 6 WEEKS ON... posted by JOANNE on July 25, 2000 at 02:28:47:
: Hi guys.
: Well it's almost been 6 weeks since I had my bunion surgery and I'm glad to report everything is going well. I am having my pins removed(from my hammertoes) on SATURDAY and soon after that I'll be out of these dorky post op shoes. I just thought I'd write and maybe give some encouragement and support to people with bunions who are too scared to go and have the operation. I had no pain after the first week and the only inconvenience so far had been these stupid shoes. Apart from that it's all been great. My feet are looking wonderful with hardly any scarring and I can't wait to get the pins out of my toes so I can start wearing my sneakers again.. Good luck to anyone out there with similar foot problems...
I am looking to go to a doctor about the bunion that I believe I have. Do you recommend that I see a podiatrist or an orthopedic surgeon.. I made the mistake of watching a bunion removal on the internet..OUCH!! But now after reading your message, I feel a little better. I am in pain just from walking around the mall, and have tried the stick on bunion protectors, and they don't help. Is surgery the only answer?AAAH!!
