Welcome to FreeRepublic.
You must’ve been in about the time I was. Remember how much things changed after President Reagan had been in office for awhile? Of course President Carter looks like President Teddy Roosevelt compared to Mr. Obama!
When not have the bunions taken care of first before the implants.
I had bunion surgery a few years ago. Do not walk, only to the bathroom. My doctor told me to make a nest at my bed with all I would need: water snacks, reading material, remote, etc. I did this and the healing was fast and fine. Good luck.
My wife had bunion surgery on both feet, inside and outside, over the course of two years. Left foot both sides, then right foot both sides, then screws & pins out left, then screws & pins out right.
Lots of time in a walking boot, but now she’s fine and pain is mostly gone.
1) Don’t walk for about a week after the surgery, but after that you can hobble around in the boot.
2) She swears by Dansko shoes. They’re ugly as hell, but last forever and your feet will thank you. They’re not cheap, but she has never worn a pair out. Her first pair still looks as good as new and they’re 8 years old.
