Bunion And Neuroma Surgery
Hi everyone, I have been off the internet for about a month as I was getting my computer fixed. It feels so good to be back on.
I had both of my surgeries August 15 and I am still recovering. I am walking around and have been wearing a tennis shoe several hours a day. I go back to work the 13th of this month. My job requires me to be on my feet 8 hours of the day, so that's why my going back to work was delayed. My big toe on the left foot is still a little big and looks so straight compared to my other big toe. I had a little infection this past week in the incision but my Dr. got it under control. I took my first walk to the mall yesterday, and took on a little more than I could handle. My foot started hurting really bad on the way home and had to take my shoe off. I have to learn to take things a little at a time and not overdue.I learned one very important thing from these surgeries; Don't overdue after your surgery as it can set you back in your recovery very quickly. I had the bunion removed from my big toe and a screw put in, and I had the Morton Neuroma removed from the same foot, along with the nerves. The nerves were really bad the Dr. said. I have more aches from the big toe than anything else. If you are going through anything similiar and I can help with any questions just let me know and I know you will get some good answers from everyone on the board as well.
