2wks post op Bunionectomy

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi! Just updating from my surgery! I had a plate, 2screws & 1 pin placed in my foot from my severe bunion !! I had my stitches trimmed today 2wks after surgery,I was scared of looking st my foot for the 1st time after a big trauma but the scar is not as bad as I thought, it looks neat, but sore but no swelling Hardly at all, but I have the removable cast on now also using the bunion boot! I have been advised to still continue walking on my heal! Am just wondering if anyone else who's had similar or same surgery find the cast irritating your scar at all?? I feel like it could easily get infected too?? I have been Feeling a tightening were the plate has been put in, am also wondering if that feeling will go or ease of? Also can u drive with the cast on as am unsure? Would be great to have a reply to this! Thank you!
