problems from bunion surgery almost two years ago
I had bunion surgery 2 years ago this July. Two days after surgery it was severly infected. I had to stay in the hospital and had to have a PIC-line (home IV) for three weeks afterwards. In October of that year, the surgeon went back in and removed the screws because I was still experiencing burning pain.
To this day, my toe and the area where the bunion was are still very swollen - permanently. Alot of the time, it feels like my toe is broken and I limp on it. There is alot of pain at the joint where the surgeon cut the bone, and there is pain (like you get when you step on a small rock) underneath the ball of my foot when I walk.
I tried doing therapy at home, but that just made it completely unbearable.
Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions?
