I had 'complex' scarf osteotomy (not sure if complex is just the standard term for bunion surgery?) and a dislocated, deformed second toe corrected with pin inserted just over two weeks ago and stitches removed on Friday. The foot was completely re-bandaged and I've been instructed to continue heel walking until the next appointment just after the six weeks mark. At the moment, I'm getting periods of quite severe nerve pain, I suspect because everything was disturbed on Friday, so hopefully this will subside over the coming days.
I meant but forgot to ask how much and how gradually I should increase being on my feet over the next four weeks. I suspect that, given even walking a little at the moment brings on pain, my foot is thickly swaddled and I need to heel-walk (with a flat-soled sandal), this will automatically limit my activity levels. However, if anyone can give some guidelines or advise from their own experience, this would be helpful. (I guess, though, that trying to get further information from the consultant could also be a wise move!)
