Hello all, I had a bunionectomy 11/10/17 no screws. According to the X-rays bone is healed. I also had a bone spur shaved off in the top of my foot. Last Tuesday my dr wanted me to get my foot in a shoe, I told him he was crazy. He said ok first thing in the am try it, and by Last Friday I should have a shoe on (4 weeks post op) and he wants me walking in to my next appointment this Tuesday in shoes. I think he is absolutely nuts! My foot is so swollen the only thing I can get on is a slipper! I have been in a boot since surgery, started putting pressure on it at 3 weeks. My back is killing me because I don’t have a shoe that is the same height as the boot. I have tried 2 different tennis shoes and crocs and my foot will not fit! Just to get some relief I am wearing slippers! I’m getting so stir crazy, I work 3 Jobs and this is killing me. For me I have never felt more excruciating pain then this. I would go through child birth 100x and have a gall bladder attack before I would ever have my other foot done. I think being alone with no help + 4 large dogs and a human son (12) that wasn’t much help didn’t help. I just want to get a shoe on and walk already. Patience’s is not a strong suit of mine! Any idea how much longer I will be laid up? I’m 4 weeks 2 days post op. Thanks
