Couldn't find what you looking for?


I had a bunionectomy over a year ago. It took four months for me to recover. About three weeks ago I had a a screw removed.

When I went for my post op appointment, the podiatrist told me that the bone hadn't healed from the first operation and then I had to be in a cast for five weeks.

Has anyone heard of this before



I'm very sorry to hear about your foot. Are you in a lot of pain? Why did you have the screw removed 3 weeks ago? Did the podiatrist that removed the screw perform the original operation?

I had a double bunionectomy about 6 weeks ago, but as far as I'm aware the screws are now a permanent fixture in my feet now. Perhaps you should think about getting a second opinion??? I hope you recover soon.
