Big toe bent after bunion op

I had a bunion operation a year ago and my big toe is bent in the middle of the big toe joint. The tip of the toe touches the ground but the middle is bent up if you know what i mean. I don't know if this is scare tissue or if a tendent is stuffed??? Its embarrassing. I live in takkies. I had it done at a government hospital and they didn't tell me about physiotherapy and the importance of it and when to start for that matter. Maybe this is the reason its like this now. I still have to have my other foot done. Has anyone had a simlar problem? Any advise or info is really appreciated!

It could be scar tissue. Have you tried working the joint? PUlling it out, up and down?If if won't move, you should go back to the ortho.

Hi Titchou

Im able to move it up and down and bend it still, its just permanently bent. More than likely its scar tissue like you say. Just hope it can be fixed.
Thanks for the reply

Working it manually can help break the scar tissue up.
