Re: fusion of big toe

What's gone wrong with it? Is it infection in the skin, blood or bone or all?

I had a fusion 8 weeks ago & had 2 courses of antibiotics for the incision site - it's still struggling to heal 8 weeks later but not infected...in the end I went to A&E and they put inadine dressing on it so I've used that for a few days...then it was looking better. Was oozing again 5 days later so I used it for 5 days then let it heal naturally...but it is still not healing & is ooozing. But not infected again so far.

Sorry not to be any help. If in doubt go to the A&E where you had the op and ask to see someone from the surgical teal. That will be my next move.
