I did it guys. But hey no pain no gain. I wonder if mine was worse than yours because i did bunionectomy and osteotomy, oh its so painful but taking pain killers four hourly really helps. Thanks for your encouragement

    Great news discomfort will go soon

    Take it easy as walking around will bring it on more it will go soon and you will forget it

    And the swelling will seem like it take ages to go but it will just bare with it

    Hope it all goes well and by the summer you be flip flopping all over the place

    Good for you. I've had 5 surgeries on my left foot and 5 or 6 on my right foot. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and have major deformities of my toes. I have so much metal in me, I would probably set off the xray machines at the airport. I'm a pro. If it swells, ice packs help to keep down the swelling. Keep them elevated and don't get up much on them and take your pain pills a little before it should wear off. You willl come through it and do fine.

    Hi, I'm 6 days post op from a double bunionectomy and osteotomy and I can definitely advise keeping on top of regular pain relief!

    I got cocky on Sunday and hardly had any pain killers because I felt I didn't need them and yesterday I was cocky again - stood for too long, didn't elevate my feet at times when I sat down and walked up and down stairs too many times.  Late last night and today I am feeling it!!

    We really do need to rest, elevate and ice as much as possible.  Sounds boring, and it can be, but it really does help.

    Congratulations on getting through the op and hopefully your recovery is smooth.

      Hi. It is not smooth at all,I try taking pain killers 4 hourly but it doesn't help at all. What I know for sure is that I regret doing this op, the pain I was feeling before is nothing compared to this even though I couldn't wear closed shoes anymore.
