To Baje (re: bunionectomy)

Your situation (and recovery) sounds almost identical to mine, Baje. I, too, felt little pain the first week, as I took myself off darvocet (I broke out in a rash) and just took the celebrex and tylenol 2 for pain. I started using crutches on day 4 and only yesterday did I begin to use only 1 crutch. I am bearing a little more weight on the foot w/one crutch, but I, too, am getting more shooting pains in my foot, some cramping as well both during the day and at night. I figure this is part of the recovery process. I am anxious to progress because in four days, I'm getting my stitches out and I really don't want to go into the doctor's office on crutches (3 weeks post-op). A lady in the waiting room last week was only 1 week post-op for the same surgery and was not using any crutches (darn martyr)! Anyway, please keep me posted on your recovery and how you're progressing. We seem to be "birds of a feather".

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
