I had chevron osteotomy lapidus bunionectomy and 2nd toe hammertoe correction on Monday. Stitches to be removed in 2 weeks (27th) screw inserted in 1st metataral and pin that is hanging out my second toe removed after 6 weeks. Was given a heel raised shoe and told to heel walk, was ok leaving hospital heel walking as ankle block and anaesthetic still active, now on day 5 post op and still cant heel walk due to the pain which is excrutiating. Next day pain was bad but bearable. 3rd day would say was my most agonising, had to call doctor get stronger pain killers as the codeine ibuprofen did no pain relief for me. My foot is raised all the time unless toilet visit, which is dreaded because as soon as i remove my foot from the raised position i can actually feel the blood going into my foot and feels as though my foot is going to explode like a balloon. After it has been down and then raised again, takes a good 40 mins for pain to subside and become bearable. Anyone else had this procedure please? im more concerned about the pain im still in and also the fact that i still cant heel walk. Any input or advice would be great. Thanks.
