Re: 2 weeks post-bunionectomy

Hi Armykat!
I'm glad to hear that your foot is feeling better! I do know that the swelling makes a huge difference in the pain level. As far as the flexibility in your toe, I would say to keep working on it diligently, and it will come. I am 5 weeks post op and for the past week he's been having me grab the base of my big toe and move it forward and back. He said it was pretty stiff. I'm definitely not a gumby yet, but it seems like a week can make a huge difference with this recovery. So I would say hang in there and you will be at 90 degrees before you know it! Also, are you taking any Ibuprofen for the swelling? I know when I took it, it reduced my swelling alot!
