Hi ihad my bunion removed and a second toe straightened 2 and a half weeks ago. My surgeon removed my bandages and stiches ( he left the pin in my straightened toe for another 6 weeks ) on tuesday but one stich was quite big and he said the wound had come away abit, Anyway he put sterile plasters on stiches and said i shoul dremove them in 3 days. i removed these yesterday but the one covering the worst bit was sore and you can see it has bled under the dressing so i left it. my worry is it might be infected as it looks about the size of a penny coin and i am not seeing the surgeon for another 5 and a half weeks, what do i do ?? Also do i still need to elevate my foot in bed at night when i am sleeping ? please help !!
