has anyone else had toes not touching the floor following bunion and hammer toe surgery.?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I had bunion and hammer toe surgery 2 and a half weeks ago and i am worried as the two hammer toes were shortened and had nextra implants put in. At the moment these toes are not touching the floor. Could this be due in part due to the swelling underneath the toes? I am getting really worried

    Yes after bunion surgery my toes didn't touch the ground for a while, you are still swollen.  As you get more mobile and with less swelling this will improve.
