    But you are in pain and need to make sure he or she investigates it further , if it's still painful after another week make another appointment and get it sorted out .

    If it's scar tissue it should respond to massaging with oil regularly .

    Remember he is not in pain you are !

    Hi, I sort of had this as well although my pins I had during my bunion surgery were put in my mid foot for my joins to heal. I could clearly feel them and still can and I'm 8 months post op. 10 weeks post op I was still in a lot of pain as well because it is such a severe surgery that they do on you that it does take quite a while to heal I believe. If it continues however I would definitely go back to your doctor and demand x-rays be taken.
