11 weeks after bunion surgery PAIN

It has been 11 weeks since my bunion surgery and I do not have any pain at the bunion site, but I have extreme pain on the top of my foot. I still can not walk properly and when I saw the podiatrist 7 weeks after the surgery all he said is that I MAY need orthotics. No explanation!!!

I am so angry. This pain is getting worse and the swelling on top is still very significant. It almost feels like it is bruised and I can not really touch it.
Has anyone else experienced pain on the top of the foot below the first 2 toes after bunion surgery?

Would a physical therapist be able to help?

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: 11 weeks after bunion surgery PAIN

Hello, I wonder what procedure you had. I am nine weeks after a bilateral scarf akin bunion op and I don't know if acupuncture would help, but I have had great results in reducing the swelling, which hasten the healing, with acupuncture. You can literally SEE the swelling going down, it's amazing. That, and as much elevation as you have time for, has really helped me. Could be interesting to see what the acupuncturist (mine is a specialist aneathetist - spelling?) had to say about your swelling/bruising, extra opinions often valuable. Do hope things improve for you, britishblue

I am now 11 weeks post bunionectomy and I am also having top of the foot pain which worsens with walking. I was told to ice, take 200 mg of Advil 3 times a day and limit the activity for my foot. The pain seemed to almost go away and now it is back. I have a PT appointment in 3 days. I am wondering how you are doing and whether or not you started PT. thanks.
