before and after

May 17, 2008 at 2:33 am | Posted in health | 2 Comments


I am amazed, impressed, and happy. To look now at the before photo of my feet and what they were for so long, it is strange, and gross! I am so happy that I had the bunion surgery. I am 6 weeks from the first surgery, and three weeks from the second. My first foot is doing great, and the second one is getting there- still tender and not really flexing, but slowly but surely it is coming along.
I am looking forward to wearing some nice shoes, without having to compensate for ugly bunions- nice sandals, and more. I will be getting my ski boots tweaked alot to fix them for the new shape of my foot. Skiing should be alot less painful next winter. Yeah!!
I am certainly happy that I didn’t get swayed by all of the horror stories of bunion surgeries! Great surgeons exist, and my physical therapist is really wonderful too. How nice to have a good base to stand on.

  1. Hi Lindsey:
    I will be going for bunion surgery on Sept 10. What kind of bunionectomy did you have? Got any advice for me?
    Your feet look amazing now. WOW Congratulations!!!

  2. I had a chevron bunionectomy.

    My advice is to really work on all the exercises they give you in physical therapy afterwards! I didn’t do it so much with my second, and now don’t have the same range of motion as I do in the other foot.

    Hope yours turn out wonderfully!
