Re: Swollen Right Foot post Bunion Surgery
I don't regret having either surgery at all. I still have a lot of soreness while I run, especially in the right foot which was the worst, but it is so much better than the pain I had in the bunion when it was there.
Swelling is normal and can occur up to 6 months to a year post op. This is something your doctor should have talked to you about. I don't understand your regret now (only a few weeks after surgery) when long-term you will potentially be pain free. Patience is a tough thing to have, especially when we're not our normal selves, but in time you will be back to your old self again.
