Deciding on Bunionectomy

I am 24 yrs old and have a small, but very painful bunion on my right foot. Three cordizone shots later, the doc said the only way to rid pain is surgery. I opted for the surgery and then began reading some info on the internet. I realize that i will be in a boot for 6 weeks, but I read that I won't be able to wear "fashionable shoes" for six months. I also travel every other week for my job. I told my boss this wouldn't be possible for 6 weeks, however, after reading all this, i fear it may be longer. Will i be able to get around airports and cities with ease after 6 weeks, or will it be much longer? If i can live with the pain a little longer...should I wait?

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
