Re: Multiple Foot Surgeries - still pain

My mother had two surgeries done for bunions and hammer toes, both times she did not get relief. I blame that on the surgeons that did the operation. She now is very crippled and has pain. These podiatrists/surgeons were not experienced enough to be doing her surgeries. When I became crippled from having severe flat feet and huge bunions, I called a major teaching hospital to find a surgeon who was suited for foot and ankle reconstruction because I only wanted one surgery done per foot because I knew the pain and recovery was going to be a long and hard process. I had one foot done and I am 14 weeks post op. My repaired foot compared to my bad foot is incredible. It gets better by the day, even though the walking and healing takes so long. I was told recovery is 6 months to one year per foot. My foot surgery was a very big deal and my case was very complicated, as he did 5 procedures on my one foot. I feel I made the right decision as to the foot surgeon I chose. That is so very important!
