Hey all, I had bunion surgery, the kind where you get an incision on the side and in between the big toe and second toe. However, my experience is as follows. I was placed in a sandal of sorts immediately, and I ended up being in crazy pain a day after surgery. I was not given crutches and was told I could heel walk immediately (I could not though). Foot on fire, never ending pain, it was incredible. However, I went in for the 2 week evaluation and saw my foot. The stitching looks messy and it looks just generally worse than I see online. I did not get the stitches out and will not get them out until 6 weeks which sounds weird.
Everything I read talks about being non weight bearing, getting a boot, stitches and bandages off after two weeks. What's the deal? How could my experience seem to vary so much?
Oh yeah, my stitches bother the hell out of me. 4 more weeks of this? Unreal!
