Re: Had cheilectomy now other foot hurts
I'm a little confused about your question. Which foot is swelling? If it's the one operated on, yes, it can have some for several months. If it's the left one, it probably won't go away until you are walking properly on both feet. And the reason the left great toe joint hurts now is that you have the same condition there as the right foot. In people who get turf toe from an injury, it's usually only in that toe. In the rest of us, it's usually in both because it is caused from either running a lot or (in the case of us women) wearing pointy toed high heeled shoes. So if one toe is damaged, the other most likely is also....my right one is but am not is the mood to have it fixed. Didn't realize how much it hurt though until I had the left one fixed!
