Manipulation Under Anesthesia After Bunionectomy
Hello - I am scheduled to undergo manipulation under anesthesia in a few days to break up scar tissue resulting from a bunionectomy 8 months ago. I have lost significant range of motion in my big toe and experience pain when when walking in most shoes. This is complicated by some bone erosion/arthritis that has taken place approximately 4 months after surgery (I am using a bone stimulator to address this).
I am quite nervous and would be interested in hearing other's experience with this procedure, especially as related to recovery time and level of success. Also, has anyone experienced arthritis/bone erosion after a bunionectomy? What did you do to address it?
Your insights would be most appreciated! Thank you.
