Good Morning everyone.
I had a Scarf Oseteomy 7 weeks ago. Obviously my foot is still swollen which I have begun to expect after reading on this forum since my operation. However I am very concerned about my big toe which appears to be in a cocked postion. I visited my GP on Monday and she dismissed bunion surgery saying it is only sucessful at removing the bunion but creats a whole host of other problems. This didn't give me much comfort. I showed her my toe and she shrugged and said it will pobably stay like that! I was mortified. I explained to her that I am tending to walk on the outer edge of my foot. She told me not to and to walk on the ball of my foot and big toe. Which I can't do as my toe wont touch the blooming floor. She said I will cause myself more problems walking on the outer edge. I know that, I'm not stupid. The big toe is the balanc for the foot is it not, so if it doesn't touch the floor how am I supposed to walk on it! Has anyone else encountered this and if so what has been the outcome. My GP referred me for Physio but only after my insistance. My consultant discharged me after my 4 week check up. I did mention the cocked toe to him at the time but he said it was early days yet. Should I also ask to be referred back to him. Any advice greatly appreciated.
