metatarsal cuneiform fusion

Hiya. It is now 12 weeks since I had the bunion on my right foot corrected and today I was discharged from the clinic 🙌

I have spent the last 3 months doing everything by the book, followed all instructions exactly and it has paid off. My xray today was good, I have healed well and am walking normally again (barring the odd limp which will subside with time). I can start wearing other shoes now instead of my trainers, even high heels (may hold off on those for a wee bit longer). I wasn't expecting such a good result today as my foot has done some strange things since coming off crutches but it all seems to be settling. Hang in there ladies & gents....I know the recovery can be tough!x

    So pleased to hear your success.

    Did you have Minimal Invasive Surgery (keyhole) or open surgery?

      Hi, Bev. I had MIS surgery for bunions and a hammer toe on both feet six weeks ago and things seem to be going well. I had this done in York. I am wondering why your surgeon has decided not to do MIS procedures? What reason did he give to yo?

    Hi Bev

    I had traditional surgery. I have a long scar down the inner side of my foot. I tried to post pics last night but had no luck via an iPad.

    When are you due to have surgery?
