I had surgery on the top of my foot a month ago. I had a bone spur scraped and a nerve blocked. It is still swelled. I have worn the constriction sock during the day as prescribed, but it is still swelling. I figured it would be healed by now, but I guess I was wrong. Should I be concerned?
It will be 4 weeks on Friday since my bunion surgery and my big toe is still painful. I don't know why but I haven't put a lot of weight on that foot. I know that soon it will be time to start putting on a shoe, but some reason it frightens me. I actually put my foot in my moms pool and it felt really great. I am supposed to go back to work at the end of April but I am not sure that will be enough time to wear a shoe and be comfortable in it. I even bought a pair of clogs but haven't tried to put it on my right foot yet. Can anyone tell me how long my big toe will feel normal again, my patience is not one of my virtues
It is very necessary to work your toe at this point, if you don't it will lose mobility and you won't get it back. You have to endure the pain during the rehab there is not an easy way to get movement back except to work it. I'm 2mos. post op from a cheilectomy and it's still sore. I'm always bending it and trying to pick up things with my toes to exercise my big toe. It doesn't do your toe any good to not exercise it, it will continue to get stiffer every day.
Good luck, hope this helps.
