Re: Help!! Nerve pain in big toe following scarf osteotomy for bunion on right foot.

Hi, thanks for your response. I do elevate 24/7, except for the 3 minutes when I take a bathroom break. I've done this since day one, I'm also still icing, 20 minutes every hour. I had backed off to 20 min everytime I took a pain pill but decided to increase the icing, it really hasn't helped. Due to the swelling I can't even use my crutches because the pain and pressure of my foot dangling behind me is so intense, I'm using a wheelchair for trips to the bathroom. I had no idea my surgery would go in this direction. thank you again for your response.
