Re: After Bunion Surgey help>>PAIN

I had my first foot done (lapidus procedure) last fall - and, yes, had throbbing pain when my foot was down!! I had to be carried to the bathroom because it hurt to have it down even for a minute. It gets better...but takes time! From what I understand, it's the blood rush to your foot causing swelling which causes the pain. What type of procedure did you have? Was it different than your first one?

I had the same problem...it is the blood rushing back down that causes the throbbing. It should be better in a day or two...if not then you may want to call your doc!

I have to agree.....it is blood rushing down causing swelling & pain. I have had 5 foot surgeries and had it happen everytime but it doesn't last but a few days.
Heal well

put ice on the foot and if pain is terrible ask your doctor for pain meds. i'm sure your on anti biotics and keep foot elevated.
