I am having a bunionectomy done this Friday, March 3rd. I am an avid excerciser....running...aerobics...lifting light weights. How soon before I can get back on my feet?
I have read the previous posts and it seems to be 6 to 8 weeks? But then I have read 3 to 4 weeks. What is the correct information?
hello there. it all depends on your current condition and your body shape. not all people who are doing sport are in the same form, so the rules for them are different. after the surgery, the most common problem that people have is the one that refers to painful little toe. people are generally scared when this happens, but it is all normal and it takes a time until this goes back to normal. now, some people are back into the sport after 2 months, until for some of them, 6 months is an optimal period. be strong and you will be healed!
Although her doctor said that the pain should be gone totally after 3 months, it’s been 5 and she is still in pain. She had physiotherapy and everything was going good but hasn’t ended up that way.
How big are your bunions? Do you have big troubles with them?
My mom was in a lot of pain and she couldn't wear normal shoes and the surgery was her only option. Later, when I went through forums, I noticed that some people had long post op pain while the other praised the procedure and said it was the best thing they did for themselves.
i hope everything goes well with your surgery. Let me know how it went!
Now, opinions and experiences are divided. Some people say that they made the best and some the worst mistake by having the procedure done.
I don’t suffer from bunions, so I can’t say how it feels having them, I do know they are cosmetically unattractive and I guess that people with bunions have no other choice.
I reckon you should surf around the forum a little bit, there is a lot of info about bunions here, I know I ran into them and like I said, opinions about the procedure are divided.
Good luck to you!
