There is no simple answer to this question since all surgeries and all patients are different. The most common bunion surgery is an Austin bunionectomy. This takes 8-10 weeks for recovery. 4 weeks in a walking cast boot, then 4 weeks in a sneaker. Another common bunion surgery is a Lapidus fusion. This takes 10-12 weeks for recovery. Usually 6-8 weeks in a non-weight bearing fiberglass cast, then two weeks in a walking cast boot followed by 2-4 weeks in a sneaker. Discuss your particular surgery with your surgeon, but these are generalizations.
