Recovery questions after removal of 2 neuromas.
I had my surgery 5/2 so I am 9 days post-op. One incision, 2 neuromas, absorb-able sutures. I was not able to weight-bear since I received no surgical shoe (bandage was too large) until yesterday when the bandages were changed and I got the shoe. The foot is still very swollen, almost lumpy on the bottom where most of the pain is. My toes also do not move very much when I attempt to do so and from the pinky toe down had been squashed so much by the dressing that there is a crease down the bottom of my foot and its sunken in down the top.
Is it normal for everything to still be so swollen/bruised, for not much movement in toes and the pain when trying to walk? Is it possible the stitches are making it harder to move things?
