Can't wait to be pain free !!

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am now 9 weeks post op and I'm experiencing a lot of pain in both feet even though i only had my left bunion removed.

It must be with the way i am walking since my op .

I have always suffered with a little pain in my right foot due to planter fasitiicis however it is worse than ever any tips or help would be grateful .

I am also experiencing a lot of burning pain in both heels .

Will i ever be pain free !!

    Hi Susan,

    I too am 9 weeks post op ! This is my 2nd op on same foot, had bunion & hammertoe surgery on Dec 15th 2014 ! Unfortunately not a great success, granted I was unable to bear much weight due to massive swelling & pain  1st time around & tho I followed surgeons instructions I ended up with very stiff, painful big toe & hammertoes remained even worse than pre op  ! Surgeon just blamed me ! Sought 2nd opinion & he just wasn't interested ! Nightmare ! So had tendon release  & repeat osteomoty on toes 2,3& 4 with same surgeon on 3rd sept ! This time I was weight bearing from day one & even walked barefoot on sand as surgeon advised, even tho it hurt like hell ! Tho toes are now straight but still quite stiff & painful ! Have been wiggling toes constantly & rolling tennis ball on ball of foot to no avail ! Have started physio & this has helped correct my gait so would advise u try that to get u walking correctly & less painfully ! Tho I try to remain positive for a good outcome , it's quite depressing !! Saw surgeon this wk & tho he said he was 90% happy,  I am less do, just want pain to end but all he said was pain & swelling will ease gradually !!

      My surgeon has now referred me to a different PT who has videoed me walking and said i have so many faults so has actually gave me her training shoes which are called schetchers rockers which have helped me to walk heel toe .

      But still in a lot of pain more with burning in my heals .

      So i feel as though I've had my bunion removed only to be faced with even more problems .

      Lets hope its all worth it in the end .

      We must be the odd few that suffer after op problems.

      I'm a year post op now, October 10th 2015, and I'm still

      suffering from pain and the feeling of walking on pebbles.

      Even a podiatrist said she couldn't help and too go back for a

      referal to a different surgeon... The only footwear I feel

      comfortable in are Fitflops and Crocs, which was the very things

      that I wanted to be out of by last winter.

      I'm in the UK and due to see another surgeon next week....
