I have read all the post from everyone who is so supportive regarding bunion surgery. I am
scheduled to have surgery on Aug. 16 and I am so apprehensive about it. It is my right foot,
I do have a severe bunion, no pain with open shoes, but my other toes are beginning
to become effected. I do have some arthritis in it too. I am very active and run about
5 times a week (3miles) I am 54, and I would love to hear from someone as to how long
it will take me to drive, walk without crutches, etc. To say the least, I am very worried. I am
worried that I will be worst than I am now, since I really do not have pain at this time. My Podiatrists
says that the gait is at 15???? and that is the limit for a regular surgery. Any suggestions
or words of comfort for this chicken little. Thank you

Thank you for any information you can give me.
