Am considering bunionectomy for moderate bunion. Dr wants to use a screw and I am opposed. is there any way to cut and realign bone without using scr?
PROBABLY, BUT....: There are many ways to cut the bone, to fix the bunion. Thinking of the various osteotomies, I think all can be stabilized with K-wires, which can be removed later. The advantage to screws is that they really compress the bone together; K-wires don't provided compression, only hold the bone together. Also, there are "dissolving" pins or screws; ask your surgeon if this is an option. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

I am having a bunionectomy in two days. I took 6 days off from work-is that long enough for this procedure?
I had a bunionectomy 5 days ago. The doctor told my husband and i that he would give me more pain meds for it. Are there any drawbacks?
Not severe.: Yes, recovering from surgery can be painful, but the more you elevate after surgery, the less you swell, and the less you swell, the less you hurt. Your surgeon will give you a boot or shoe, and pain medication, too: don't be afraid to take what has been prescribed by your surgeon. Most common side effects to the pain meds are sleepiness or some nausea. Take the meds with food to prevent this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I had a bunionectomy a month ago. The pins in my foot were removed 2 days ago. What sort of pain will i experience in the coming days while i recover?
Very little!: Pin removal is usually a pretty easy, uncomplicated process. It's done in the office and after several weeks the pins are "ready" to come out, meaning your surgeon doesn't have to work very hard to remove them, and it shouldn't cause you too much pain. Discomfort from pin removal is usually gone with a day! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Loss of motion: If you can't wear heels after bunion surgery often the reason is that the great toe joint does not have enough range of motion. After a bunionectomy scar tissue can bind down the great toe joint leaving it stiff. You will need physical therapy and often a dynamic splint such as a dynasplint to get the motion back and then after several months you should be able to wear heels again. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
