6 weeks post surgery big toe pain?

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi i'm 6 weeks post surgery and i have this odd sensation under my big tow near the tip, it almost feels as if i'm stepping on a staple if i press on it too hard ? Has anyone had this? i should have mentioned it at my consultation but forgot! could this be the nerves? its not anywhere near the cut?

    Hi Kate,

    I Had a bunion operation 21months ago and in November i went back to see a different surgeon as i have had pain in my foot ever since. The out come of that appointment is i have to have another operation because the first surgeon didnt perform it properly and the screw he used was too big & has been rubbing on my bone. Not looking forward to this but he says it has to come out asap, ive postpone it till January. Dont think this is is what is wrong with your foot but you never know.

    I wish i hadnt left it for so long but i read on the internet it could take up to 2 years to heal properly.

    Hope everything is ok &your foot heals soon.

      It seems that a lot of people have some kind of permanent hardware after bunion surgery. I sort of expected I would have one too. But my doctor said he does not do it this way. I hope he is right. I did a lot of research to select a surgeon and he is the number one foot surgeon in my state.

      I had a screw that dissolved - and a pin he removed. So no internal hardware for me. I had the bunionectomy and fixed hammer toe. Seems to be holding together fine.
