I had chevron bunion surgery on August 19, 2015. The first week was a nightmare of feeling like the entire foot was stuck in a wasp nest (stinging, burning and pressure from swelling). I can't take any if the usual painkillers like Hydocodone or Lortab, so the doc prescribed Tramadol. It worked for the first couple of days, then I broke out with itching and hives. The doc had me take two Excedrin Migraine every 12 hours with two Tylenol in between (meds at 6 hour intervals). Didn't help much. Am now five weeks out and still needing to elevate the foot most of the time and taking one of the Tramadol or 1/2 of a Loraizapan each night to calm it down and sleep--and ice, ice, ice for the burning. Has anyone else had this experience with their surgery? Everything I find is swelling, throbbing, etc. Not the stinging sensation I continue to get when the foot is down for very long or gets tired. Thanks.
