On December 13th I had a bunionectomy osteotomy with kissloc plates as well as a gastroc recession and hammertoe correction on my 3rd toe. Ever since the 3rd day of surgery, I've had severe pain after getting up to use the restroom or from my room. It throbs and feels like pressure and is usually relieve by resting again. I am in a boot and crutches and always use them for steps.
Within the first week my doctor said I could partially weight bear with my boot/crutches, so I did and did go some places such as the movies or out of eat as the pain would improve when up through the day.
I called my doctor yesterday because the pain was still so severe in the mornings and was hurting worse when i was up. He started me on antibiotics because I came in for an extra visit due to the pain and there was a red and tender area on my left lateral foot.
Today the pain was so severe when I went to the bathroom, I am still having to take the narcotics just to handle it. Anyone else have this issue? Could it be just from overuse that first week?
