Falling

Hi guys so I've had a bunion removed 5 weeks ago and just been put into a cast about a week ago. Last night I slipped coming out of shower and now my foot is sore/ pins and needles type. Anyone know if I could do any damage to big toe. My big toe is plastered BTW. I'm very worried

    Unfortunately, I have no idea as to what may or may not have happened. I think, hope you are probably all right. My question is why were you put in a cast? Did they explain it to you? Have you been allowed to bear any weight on that foot? To walk? I have had bunion and hammertoe surgery exactly 3 weeks ago today. For the first two weeks I was in an aircast boot and then switched to a neoprene surgical sandal with rigid sole. I was told to not bear any weight on it. I am spending my time in bed with my foot propped up.

      *sorry 4 weeks post op. Had bandage for the 1st 3 weeks until stitches out then my surgeon recommended for plaster up to knee. My op was hallux valgus bunion. I'm not weight bare to. Another 2 weeks until hopefully I'm allowed to weight bare.

      I'm at my local hospital now to get it checked out x

      Did you wear a boot (aircast or similar ) right after surgery? Why did your doctor say you needed a cast? My doctor did not mention that he was going to put me in a cast. I will have my 4th week check up next week, right before Thanksgiving.

      I think it's too protect the big toe and the keep it in place. I never got a boot to put on x go back in 2 weeks to get off so hopefully I can begin to put pressure on it x

    To be on the safe side you may want to call your doctor so he can xray to make sure it's ok.
