Hi all, I have just been to see my surgeon for the 2 week post op appointment. I had the horrible big hot bandage off!! Hurray. My foot is very straight, just a little bit swollen, and just 3 very small cuts. I have attached a picture but I still a light dressing on, I'll keep that on till tomorrow, but once its off I'll take some close ups of the incisions, so everyone can see the gory details! Its kinds hypersensitive on the skin at the top but as long as I don't press  on it I don't feel anything at all. He says I can walk without crutches in the home, but keep at least one when I'm out to slow me down and make other people not walk into me. I think he's a genious. I have 2 pins in the foot and one in the big toe.

    Yippppeeee, so pleased for you! Glad it all went well and you are happy....I just can't wait to take my pin out so that I look a little less deformed, can't see how straight mine really is as the pin travels down the side where my bunion used to be!! Post a new pic when the dressing is off x

    Great result !  The foot looks fab. Did he said you can go out just for a short time? Do you find that the skin on the foot is peeling  due  to it having been sprayed pre op with alcohol ?

    Really pleased for you .

      He didn't say how long to go out, but I have to go on a car trip tomorrow as looking at a new house, so lets see how that goes. It is a bit peeling, I think that will go in a couple  of days with some moisturiser
