Re: post-bunionectomy recovery

: I really can't tell you exactly what should be happening to you since I do not know alot about you and what surgery was performed. Your surgeon should be the one to discuss this with you.
: After having said that, I can tell you that patients all vary in their responses to post operative pain. Make no mistake about it, foot surgery is uncomfortable. I tell my patients to do what they need to to be comfortable, short of remaining bedridden. I also like to tell them it will get better , just not as fast as you would like or how it does on TV shows.

: Good luck.

Dr. Abrams,

Thank you for your quick response to my question. I am feeling a bit impatient, as I will be coming up to the 2 week mark on Monday. I guess my frustration is that according to my doctor, "many people feel very little discomfort and get around quite well" doesn't appear to pertain to me. I'm not taking many pain med's and perhaps I should (at least Tylenol). Then, I may be less uncomfortable. I don't seeing me "ditching" the crutches still for awhile, but I hope in the near future to start trying to get around on one. I will be getting my stitches out in three day so I will be interested in seeing just where my doctors expectations are at that point. I'll let you know. Thanks again for your quick reply.

Softens and remove corns in a most comfortable way. It is ideal to help relieve pain on a toe or finger affected by corns, blebs, blisters, hammertoes, calluses and digital traumas.
