Re: Toe Pain/Popping After Surgery

Hi...what we all have to remember after surgery (and especially while we are still in cast/boots) our weight is being distributed differently and we are now hitting different pressure points. I understand you're nwb but there is still weight/pressure just in how you set/rest your foot. I can remember asking the doctor or the pt why this spot on my foot or that spot. I mean the next joint would have made sense as I can acknowledge that it's taking more pressure after the fusion, but the whole top of my foot??? Chances are when you start weight bearing or transition out of the boot, that pang will go away. But it will likely be replaced with something else..at least for now...eventually...hopefully it all gets better. Luckily for you it sounds like this current pang is something you can relieve. Good luck
