I have recently been told by my podiatrist that I need to have surgery to correct my bunions. From what I understand they’ll have to make two incesions in my first metatarsal to move it and place in two screws. Has anyone had this surgery before?
Also, I am wondering if my podiatrist is being too conservative in restricting my physical activity. He suggested that after the surgery I say off of my feet completely for a week then spend 4-6 weeks in a walking boot. However, I am rather frustrated with the fact that I am not allowed to do anything as far as exercise during this two month period of time. I asked if swimming would be okay after the incision site healed, he said no. Is this accurate?:-?
