I had a Lapidus Bunionectomy to my left foot.
The surgeon used two memory staples only as internal fixation.
I was not put in any plaster cast.
I was allowed to walk heel weight bearing in a wooden soled shoe after two weeks.
I developed a stitch abscess at 6 weeks but was allowed to fully weight bear from then on.
My fusion failed and I needed revision surgery.
It has been suggested to me that the reason the initial surgery failed was my fault as I couldn't have followed the instructions in regard to weight bearing.
I am adamant that I did exactly as I was told.
Does anyone have any similar experiences with this surgery?
