On Nov. 4, 2014 I had bunion surgery, with the 2nd toe a hammer toe and a release on the third toe. Not sure of the proper medical name for the procedure I had but the second toe was shortened and pinned. The third toe also had a pin. I have 3 plates and 13 screws on the big toe and second toe metatarsal. The pins were removed at 3 weeks. I am told I will keep the rest of the hardware unless it bothers me. The big toe and second toe are doing great. At nine weeks I went into a real shoe. Well that was a loose soft tennis shoe. The third toe sort of hangs down and is very sore where it attaches at the foot. That toe has actually been the most painful of the three. My second toe is a little higher than the other toes. So my Dr. told me to press down on it and rub my scar to break up the scar tissue so that toe would lay down better. I am still soaking in warm epsom salts water and icing it 2 times a day. Has anyone had this problem with their third toe. I am tempted to put my boot back on to be able to walk without this toe hurting.
