Hi, I don't post too often, but you all seem pretty well versed on a variety of subjects. I just had a foot surgery a week ago-Had huge bunion removed, and a joint replacement due to hallux rigidus. Of course, I did plenty of research and chose a surgeon accordingly, but there seems to be a huge difference of opinion regarding recovery. According to my doctor, I should have put my crutches aside a few days ago and be walking mostly. I can barely put pressure on the foot (which btw looks loks a smushed, bruised mushroom), and am still in pretty constant pain. Anyone out there had or know someone who has had a similiar surgery? I have a pretty high pain tolerance, but this procedure has literally kicked my ass. Doctor says I am doing fine, and I am fearing the pain more than really experiencing it at this point.
