I had Bunion surgery 5 weeks ago and the surgeon also shortened my 2nd toe. Everything went well with the surgery and I am hoping to be out of my surgical shoe and splint this week. I have swelling when I walk on my foot for a while and numbness but this was nothing that I didn't expect or was warned about. My big problem is my 2nd toe, it hangs down under my other toes and I have no movement what so ever with it. It just hangs floppy and wobbles when I move my foot. At the minute it is in a splint holding it up but as soon as I take it off to shower it just drops down. I haven't seen the surgeon for almost 3 weeks when I had my stitches removed so haven't been able to mention it although I will when I see him on Thursday.
Has anyone else had this problem or know what the likely cause might be??
