My bunion surgery (Lapidus procedure) was 4 months ago and I noticed from the very beginning that when I tried to curl my toes under, the big toe would not move, it would just sit there no matter how hard I tried it seemed disconnected. Even though I can get my toe to curl down with my hand, doing it involuntarily seemed impossible. Now if it's in the right angle I can sometimes get some movement to curl it down but it will not stay. With the light touch of my finger I can move it back toward my body even though I am curling my toes under with all my might. Consequently when I walk it will not grip the floor and push down, it just floats up. This makes It painful to walk. I feel maimed. This is NOT normal is it? My doctor keeps telling me it's fine but I really don't think it is. Can anyone shed some light on this?
