Anyone had Bunion surgery?

Posted by ckanaan on 6/12/03 at 11:29 (121640)

I am going in for bunion surgery tomorrow morning and then the other foot 3 weeks later. I am 24, healthy with flexable feet and joints.

Anyone got any good stories to tell me to put my mind at ease. I am a little apprehensive about the surgery. What is it like??

My grandmother had the surgery about 5 years ago and she was in no visible pain, although she said that it was quite tender, and it slowed her down considerably. She had a surgical boot for about 2 weeks, but was able to walk on it without the assistance of a cain or crutches...I think that with you being so young, it will be much easier for you to recover. Hope this eases your mind a bit.
