I found this article extremely helpful in what to expect. It also made me more confident in having the surgery.

Marianne - did you have the surgery? How's the recovery going? My husband is a cab driver and thinks he'll be able to return to work within two weeks!!!! What are the odds?

I was able to drive within 3 days after surgery with surgical shoe. Check with your insurance/attorney. If an auto accident occurs, despite who is at fault, the driver may be held liable.

I had surgery on the 30th july,Iused crutches for 2 days and have rested my feet in between doing the normal chores other than cooking but now am thinking I didn't rest enough as feet are now swollen and uncomfortable.I do not regret having the surgery but suggest you rest with feet up as much as possible.3

I had my surgery on the 28th of July, 2009.
Everything went like a charm. No pain, just a little picking sensation. Ibuprofen did the trick. I am very happy with the results. I elevated my foot just about all day for 4-5 days, getting up only to use the bathroom. (and light cooking)..It's now August 17th, and I'm just about ready to go back to work. I have a desk job which makes it convenient. ...so, there you have it...obey the doctor and you'll be fine.

I had bunion surgery on both feet 12 weeks ago. The pain was excrutiating and I have only just started walking without crutches. My swollen feet are like elephant feet, I can't fit into any shoes at all. My toes are stiff and my feet won't bend properly. Will I ever feel better?

I had a bunionectomy on my left foot 2 years ago, I only had pain for a few days, the swelling went away after about 6 weeks,the scar is barely noticeable. I just had the right foot done 11 days ago, I am up walking with minimak discomfort, and healing quite nicely. I think the success of the surgery depends on the doctor as well as the following the post op instruction. I would advise anyone to have this done.

Im in my third week post surgery. The pain is now minimal but still taking panadol three times a day. I wish I had been given more info on expected swelling, bruising and stiffness of toe. I will return to work teaching in another three weeks and may have to request modified playground duty. Surgery is very limiting and I am not able to drive for another 3 weeks. If you drive for a career or on your feet expect to be limited for 6-8 weeks. This is an honest article. Thanks

Hi, I have had a bunionectomy,back in feb and i can tell you it wasn,t the best experience i have ever had, after two weeks the stitches came out and it completely came apart, and got infected thanks to a very patient nurse at my GP's she did managed to make it better, but had a very nasty scar, which was soon made better with kelcote cream at £30 a small tube, designed and used by plastic surgeons, brilliant stuff as you then have to descenitise it with hot and cold water and any thing else you can find, 8 months on and i'm still having problems with plantar faciitis, and god for bid you experience mortons neuroma, like I did, just one bunion can effect your biomechanics over pronating, back problem, legs hips and knees,the only good thing to come out of my op was i now don't have back pain, but am waiting to be fitted with orthotics lets just hope it works, cause my husband has put me on a Shoe Ban Earth shoes are really good but only two websites sell them ( LOVE those ***edited by moderator*** web addresses not allowed) as they are from America and buy a size bigger.

I hope this email helps friend. M Essex
