Hello, Im new to the group. My name is Deidre and I am 47 years old. I have had this bunion on my left foot that has gotten worse over the past few months. I saw a surgeon on April 3 and he said I could keep trying the methods that havent been working or he could break the bone, realign it and put a screw in it..I almost fainted😣. I opted for the surgery (chevron osteotomy) which I had May 18, 2018. This is VERY painful!!! I refuse to take the narcotics as I already take a few psych meds and dont want the unwanted side effects. Extra strength tylenol knocks the edge off somewhat..Im so frustrated because I have a weak bladder and its hard to make it to the bathroom. Im walking on the heel and side but it hurts no matter what..Ive been elevating my leg and icing it but it helps minimally as the bandage is so thick..Please tell me the pain will get better😢
