I had left foot hallux valgus surgery on 10/09/2018
3 screws placed in my foot to realign my big toe.
The reason for my post is because i havent seen my consultant yet, infact ive seen no proffesional since and have had alot of discomfort due to there being a cast underneath all the bandages, which is so tight. Although im aware this is to keep the big toe in line. Anyway basically after calling the outpatient department to see when i will get an appointment ive been told 11/10/2018 as they have a back log- a month after surgery! My discharge notes said id see the consultant within 14 days. I asked if i can hust come to fracture clinic and have the bandages atleast changed and looked at, i was told no its not a walk in clinic.
Im so frustrated and my foot needs to be out of this cast, everytime it swells up the cast/bandages become unbearable. Maybe this is normal? But without having seen a doctor or speaking to anyone who has had this surgery, im just really unsure about everything. Is a month ok to wait ? Is the tightness and swelling normal. Also i have Constant! Pins and needles running thru my big toe which is still numb. Please could anyone advise me on the points ive raised. Id really appreciate it.
