What is calcaneal bursitis?

Calcaneal Bursitis is an inflammatory disease that affects the posterior area of the heel. There are a superficial and a deep retrocalcaneal bursa; these are on the back of the heel and the Achilles’ tendon. These are sacks of fluid with the function of facilitating the sliding between the tendons and the bony structures reducing the suffering due to excessive friction of both structures.

Bunion surgery recuperation

Recovery of surgery of Bunion (Bunion)

Recovery after bunion surgery takes about 3 to 6 weeks, complete recovery from surgery can take an average of 4 – 6 months. During the first 2 weeks after surgery, you will wear a surgical boot to protect your foot. Keep the bandage clean and dry.

You should not put weight on your finger at first, and you will need a cane for help. Stay off your feet as much as you can, and ice your feet and feet to speed healing and reduce swelling.


Your foot will remain swollen for several months after the operation. Wear shoes with enough space to minimize your pain. Women should try to avoid using high heels for at least 4 months after bunion removal. Your doctor may send you to physical therapy, where you will learn exercises that can strengthen your foot and leg.
