Healing time for one bunion, big toe size.

Posted by Phuong Le on 1/23/04 at 17:55 (142751)

Hi,

Can anyone tell me how long the healing process is
for a bunion removal. I had one removed that was next to my big
toe. I am going on vacation in 4 weeks. Will I be able to walk.

Thanks
Phuong

Phuong,
I'm not a doctor, but it's impossible for anyone to know with any certainty what your foot will feel like in four weeks time. Everyone heals differently and at their own pace.

Only you and your doctor know where you are at this point, for us to tell you you'll be up and running in time for your planned vacation, I think would be purely a guess on our part.
