Has anyone had sesamoid pain after bunion (Lapidus) procedure

So I am still have some pain in my right foot when pressure is applied to the area of the foot just under the big toe. It's when I walk or stand.

Now I am wondering if it could be the sesamoid bones since that is exactly where the pain is.

I am 7wks, 1 day post op. Left foot is fine and no pain in that same area with the left foot.

Does anyone know if the sesamoid bones are taken out during a Lapidus procedure??
Could they possibly be damaged?? Or could something have happened to them during the healing process??

Does sesamoid pain post Lapidus sound normal to those who have had this procedure?

Any thoughts on this?

Thank you.
