HI all. i had the bunion on my right foot removed and tendon cut 3 weeks ago today. I had all the big bandages removed last week and light dressing put on. At this appointment my surgeon told me to do what i felt comfortable with walking wise. I am off the crutches and obviously wearing my lovely shoe that they gave me still. I am moving around the house/using stairs pretty much normally now and have ventured round Asda a couple if times. The only pain/discomfort i have had is in the outside edge of my foot but im assuming this is due to the way i'm walking and the fact i have a bunionette there too.
So....my big question is how long did people leave it before they went for a longer walk? I need to go to the post office which is about 1mile away and would be pushing a pram. I feel like i would be ok doing it but friends and family are concerned. I have to wait another 5 weeks before i see my surgeon again which seems an incredibly long time to wait before trying to walk properly again.
ANY experience and advice would be great!
