      I had a exostectomy that is where he cut the bunion off and doesn't perform a realignment...But I know he told me he was straightening my big toe...I go back next week for my two visit and I will have more details on my foot...Hopefully I'll be able too take baby steps because right now I can't and I have a small bunion on the right foot but I don't know if I'm going too get it done because its not messing with me.

    I had both feet done 7 weeks ago with minimally invasive technique and I was weight bearing from right after surgery. Your surgeon should've told you if you're allowed to walk.
