It was just two days ago that I came out of bunionectomy surgery quite elated with the good drugs and numbing still very present in my system, however, when they wore off a few hours later I have been hard pressed to enjoy any relief from the stabbing, swelling and burning sensations. I'm glad to hear that this swelling and stabbing is normal and am sorry for the discomfort that all of you are suffering. This blog has given me some comfort knowing that I am not alone or just weak! Now I have a couple of questions. I hesitate to call the doctors after hours number (surgery was Friday/office closed) when I don't think it's an emergency; except for lavatory trips I am down with foot elevated but the compression from ace bandage and boot make the pain more unbearable. Am I doing any damage by not wearing them?
