Re: Toe Pain/Popping After Surgery
Hi! I experienced something like this after my surgery in Feb. I had a Brostrom, peroneal tendon repair, and osteotomy for groove deepening. My big toe was stiff and would pop or need popping before I was weight bearing too. As I was going through PT and transitioning to weight bearing, it became painful to bend when walking. Wound up being diagnosed with tendinitis in it. Doc said it would take 6 wks to heal if I was careful with it. For the most part it is better, but I've stayed busy so it flares up sometimes. Hope that helps and I hope yours gets better!
