    Pain 12 weeks after Big Toe Fusion

    Cany anyone help me? I had a big toe fusion on Jan 25. It will be 12 weeks on Monday. I was in a cast for 6 weeks, CAM walker for 5. Doctor says it is okay to "wean" me out of this boot. I couldn't fit into any of my old sneakers, so I tried a Merrell Jungle Slide shoe. Great at first, now I am having pain. Doc said to go back into the CAM walker and back off weight on the foot. That is all I do is sit. I keep feeling something is wrong. Does anyone have any input? This is my second surgery on same foot. The first bunionectomy I had sesmoid pain and arthritis is the joint.

    i am sorry to hear that. i was in a nwb cast for 12 weeks and then the cam walker for 4 weeks. i had pain after the cm walker came off. i bought boys gym shoes because they run so wide. also, the dr told me to wear a laced shoe because it gives the foot more support.

    Debbie, do you think it is "normal" to have this pain now that I am trying to walk in a sneaker or sandal? I just hope something isn't wrong. I can't get into the doc until 6 May.
    Did you go to Physical Therapy at all? Did you remember who long before you where pain-free?
