Re: swelling after foot surgery
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.
