Hi There I'm from Cape Town and had a bilateral bunionectomy on the 5the December 2016 making it my 5weeks post op.
I'm so depressed as my feet appears I still have bunions when my cast were removed at 11days post op I was expecting straight swollen feet but instead I had bunion swollen feet the orthopaedic doctor assured me it was only swelling well its almost 4weeks after and the bunions are very much visible. Straight after surgery my surgeon said to me my feet are now straight but I'm almost sure he was lying.
I haven't had much instructions from him but I've been laying and elevating most of the 5weeks as the orthopaedic shoes I got are way to uncomfortable to walk in. They put me off balance and the one shoe is way smaller than the other.
My skin is now peeling and the incision area is quite red and painfully not sure why. My experience has been really depressing as my bones have been broken, shaved and fixated with screws but for what? I still have them bunions and did I mention this was my second surgery.
I have my next check up on Thursday 12Th January they will be doing an x.ray not even looking forward to this.
I hope most of you have straight feet and are recovering well it just takes time, so take it easy
