The most common question patients ask when discussing bunion surgery is when they can get back on their feet.

That question is answered usually : "you can immediately, with good judgment!"

All but the most severe bunions that are repaired by me are allowed partial or full weight bearing privileges usually by the second or third day of surgery. Here is the "good judgment" part: Usually on day 3 I give you a special "boot" to walk in. This is your new shoe for at lease 4 weeks after surgery. I never recommend "walking the mall" after surgery, especially Lenox, and usually will keep you out of work if you stand a lot for at least 3-4 weeks if necessary.
