Re: stiff bone 5 months post op!

Hi, I'm new here. I had surgery for hallux limitus and bunions 10 months ago. My big toes are back to being as stiff and sore as ever. My podiatry surgeon said it has "adhesions" which form like scar tissue over the joint. He said I could have more surgery to scrape off the adhesions. I'm not in a hurry for more surgery, and I'm going to consult an orthopaedic surgeon for a second opinion.

Re: stiff bone 5 months post op!

Just curious, which type of bunion surgery did you have? I had the lapidus proceudre last month. My doc put me in an aircast a week after surgery so I could start moving my big toe. I can move it up, but down is still stiff. Were you guys able to ever able to move your toe?

Re: stiff bone 5 months post op!

i had an austin bunionectomy . yes i was able to move my toe when i had the pin inside. someone said they might need another surgery to scrape the scar tissue off. i was told that i have a lot of scar tissue on my bone too. but there is no way im going for a second surgery on the foot. my doctor also refused to give me an xray. my last xray was when my pin was inside. so im going to take my own xray and get a second opinion. thanx
