I had a big toe fusion and hammer toe surgery 6 weeks ago on my right foot. I had the pin removed from my toe on Friday and was told the fusion in the big toe is still not fully fused but not to be duly concerned - I too have found difficulty in walking as both toes are slightly elevated from the floor at present. As the doctor has suggested I start to walk normally as possible I attempted a dog walk today just to the end of the road and back. On my return my foot over the big toe scar was so sore and had become really swollen - this I might add was whilst wearing my surgical shoe as I just can't get any normal shoes on! I think I am beginning to panic as I was hoping I may be able to return to work within next 3 weeks - am I expecting too much too soon ?
This morning I have woken up and my toes feel so stiff and my leg is cramping - think I may have done too much ! Your thoughts would be much appreciated as I'm feeling a bit fed up today ! I think I feel I should be doing more then I am doing at this stage. I was hoping I might be able to drive now too but just big sure in going to manage that in the near future
