Hi

I am 4 weeks post op and was wondering if this pain at this stage was normal.

I don't remember feeling this last time.

      Hi sherry

      Glad to hear that. It's coming and going. Hoping it's all part of the healing process😦

      It just gives you a bit of peace of mind when you know someone else has been through it.

      Thanks Sherry

      I too experienced a lot of pain were you much younger with the first one? I have noticed a trend the older patients like me almost 50 take longer to heal. I had a friend in her thirties who had it and she bounced right back. I am at 8 weeks and doing much better still struggling with being a little off balanced, stiffness in big toe and swelling. But things have much improved my goal now is to break up scar tissue with exercises and not try to over do it which is a lot easier said than done. Hope this helps ease your mind :-)

      Thanks for your message

      Well I was 40 with the first one and I've just turned 42...so not really that much of a difference.

      I suppose every surgery is different too.

      I'm still in bandage right now for another 2 weeks.

      Good luck with your healing too. ?

    Hi, Jazzy. I have had a minimally invasive surgery (MIS) on my right foot on October 4th and I still have a lot of swelling. Pain comes and goes and feels like burning. I have already schedulled a MIS on my left foot for November 29th and I'm quite nervous 'cause I don't know if I will be able to handle pain and swelling in both feet. On the other hand, I want to get the second operation as soon as possible in order to end this whole "feet nightmare" once and for all.

      Mine was done on Oct 6th and it is still swollen and painful when I try to walk on it. Don't know how you could do another one. Good luck!

      Well, it's not an easy decision. I wanted to have both feet operated on at the same time but my surgeon said that I would not be able to clean my body without any foot.

      I see that most women who decide to wait for the second surgery then decide to wait longer and longer... I'm 38 and very active. I dream about running again or at least cycling... So this is my reasoning: my life is already a mess with the operated foot. Could it become much worser? It seem like the decision of having a second baby. Should you wait and "forget" about the nights without sleeping and the diapers or should you do it without waiting much time?

      Hi

      Well the first time I had my surgery was 2 years ago. I had both feet done together. I was glad I did because I wasn't in a lot of pain and the swelling wad minimal and only lasted a couple of months.

      But the downside was the surgery was under corrected and I wasn't happy with it and got referred to another surgeon .

      He seemed really good and said he could do revision surgery on me but only on one foot this time due to it being more risky.

      If I had a choice then I would have gone for both again because the whole process seems so long and to go through it again 😣

      So anyway I had surgery on the 12th October on one foot and I'm quite glad it was only the one this time because it does feel different this time round and do find doing things a bit more difficult especially having a bath😧

      I do think though it all depends on the extent of surgery you've had done. The first time I had scarf osteotomy. This time I've had 1st metatarsal osteotomy and akin osteotomy. Don't think I could have handled that on both feet.

      I hope this time round the swelling doesn't last too long .....fingers crossed 🙈

      Hi again, Jazz. I didn´t know your full story. It´s terrible!!!! I hope this time everything turns out OK: I think we only have to be very very very patient... though it's not easy. But living with bunions is not easy either. So, all in all, there is no other way to take... (sorry for my poor English, my mother tongue is Spanish).

      I had my right foot operated on on October 4th and I'm still unable to wear normal size shoes (I would like to wear sandals because I live in Argentina and it's spring here). Instead of buying extra pairs of shoes I keep on wearing the post surgery shoe. Well, I'd rather take a shower and get on time for my second surgery today!!! Wish me luck!!!

      Thanks!!! Surgery has already finished and so far so good (because I still have the effect of theĀ anaesthetic).
