Ouch, I really do feel for you. I just had my bunionectomy a week and a half ago. It still hurts to walk. I have a 2 month old baby boy and I don't have the luxury for bedrest since I lost my babysitter. I know the screw seems to be popping out 4 days after the surgery. I may need for it to be taken out. Was that painful? Did the dr put you "out" for it? I just don't like to be awake for gross procedures. Sorry, I don't have any advice for you, Im still waiting to see if this surgery is a success.
