I recently had a bunionectomy, where the big toe was broken, realigned and a permanent pin put in place. I am now 10 days into my recovery and still find the foot too tender to put much weight on it.
I am in a post-surgical “boot” and although my doctor said I would probably be able to walk on the heal of the boot to get around, I am finding it too painful without crutches.
Is this unusual or am I just not tolerating the pain well?
When might it be a reasonable expectation where I should be able to bear weight and ditch the crutches. I do use my heal to balance and I am trying to apply some weight.
Thanks for your imput, I appreciate it.
