A: Bunion surgery is not as painful as you may have heard. Most of our patients only take pain medication for 1-3 days after bunion surgery, and almost all of them state that it wasn’t nearly as painful as they thought it would be. Careful surgical technique can help to minimize postoperative pain, as does the protocol that we have our patients employ after their bunion surgery. In addition, most patients with bunion surgery are able to bear weight on their surgical foot immediately after surgery. More information can be found on our Bunion page.
