Question Bunion surgery 1 week ago

Hello all! I had bunion surgery 11/19/12. The doctor broke the bone, moved it over, and then put 2 screws in to hold it in place. The surgery was a breeze. I only took pain meds for a day. I am in a walking boot and have probably been on it more than I should be. But it really feels ok. My toes are all really bruised and swollen, but not too painful. I go for my first post op appointment tomorrow. I was wondering if the stitches will come out and will he release me back to work? It seems like everything I have been reading says 6 week-6 month recovery period. I also feel like I should be in a lot more pain that I am. I went out shopping on Good Friday and everyday since. Maybe I have a huge pain tolerance? Anyways, when can I expect the stitches to come out and when can I expect to be released for work. (Not that I am excited to go back)
