Bunion op started Ealing without shoe but feel lump

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've had a bunion op on right foot and now have to start walking on foot. But it hurts numbness and tingling/burning but also a falling like a lump under pad of foot but consultant says nothing there. But I can't walk comfortably on it as it feels like I'm walking on a hard lump. Don't know what yo do. Has anyone else gone through this.

    Hi Lorraine

    after surgery there is often damage to the nerves. This means strange sensations. after surgery for BC I felt like I had a ball under my armpit for weeks. I've also got numb patch on my arm. so when foot felt odd I wasn't surprised. much of the discomfort heals or improves. pain killers for nerve pain are specific. normally over the counter drugs don't work.

    see doctor and try to be patient.

    hi. also had bunion removed from the right foot 5 weeks ago. i'm still using my magic shoe but have experienced a similar tingly strange sensation. i have put this down to my foot still swelling. swollen tissue never feels quite right. Also i still have the sensation that there is something between my big toe and the next one! very strange!

    Hi All

    I can feel the flip flop too. I had two toes realigned ( they had been dislocated) at the same time as bunion surgery.

    All the top of my big toe is numb too. Both sensations are improving though or maybe it's the new normal?

    Happy Christmas.
