[QUOTE=lady neon]Hi everyone,
I had neuroma surgery w/osteotomy, in the second interspace this past april. After getting all the bandages off and walking in a closed shoe my third toe drifted over ontop of my fourth toe. This made wearing shoes extremly uncomfortable and almost impossible.
I disscused this with my Podiotrist and he said that all I needed was something he called a ligiment release of that toe.
He did that about four weeks ago and I had the stitch out about a week ago but he wrapped the toe up real tight to the other toe to make sure it ended up straight.
when I took that bandage off the toe was completly limp. I have to control over it. When I walk it just flops. I can't bend it or make it move at all.
Has anyone had anything like this done? did It turn out this way? My Podiotrist isnt in untill next week, and I sure hope this is just temp.
I have a problem somewhat like yours. Only I had hammertoe surgery with part of the bone removed and a pin. I developed an infection only a couple days after the surgery so the doctor took out the pin. The pin was suppose to be in for at least 4 weeks. Now my toe does exactly the same thing. It looks awful also.My doctor said it wouls stiffen up as I developed scar tissue inside the toe..Well now I have a really tight scar tissue on the outside that pulls up my toe making it very uncomftable.The doctor is going to cut the scar to release some of the tightness.Hopefully your doctor will tell you that you should develop scar tissue to stiffen your toe also.And hopefully he is right.LOL
