Hey all, I had my bunion removal two weeks ago. I had my bone broken and re-set straight, with the aid of 3 screws and a plate, the bone shaved, legiments between the first and second toe shortened and another screw into the big toe bone to keep it straight.
Everything was great until a couple days ago when I started getting severe burning/pulling/chaffing feeling right on my stitches along the side of my foot. It is so irritating and painful, I'm concerned the constant irritation is going to result in a infection of my stitches >.< I have never had stitches before so I don't know if this is to be expected or what...
Has anyone else experienced this before and know if its normal?
Any help would be appreciated, I called the orthopedic clinic at the hospital, but of course they are taking their sweet ass time returning my call =|
