: I had both of my feet done 11 days ago. It is a pain I would not wish on my worst enemy. Although every day is getting better...sometimes the pain is unbearable. I would not have gone back to have the other done had I not had both done at the same time. I am off work for a scheduled 8 wks. I hope to be better by then. Need to find unfashionable shoes to wear. I promise to take of my feet from now on so that I never have to go thru this pain again. One foot now feels good, the other with the pin in it is really sore. I had bunions and bunionettes removed from both feet. A total of 96 stitches. A walker was necessary for the first week. Trying to keep them elevated and iced, but I do have a life and kids to take care of. I was in bed for the first 8 days. Thank God I have a good husband who cooked and cleaned while I was laid up. Would not recommend this surgery to anyone who cannot count on help from family members. Alot of people I know are waiting for my outcome before they see a podiatrist. Cannot believe the # of people that have bunions. It's astronomical! Good luck cause you will need it.
