      I know the feeling. It scares me. It seems like my recovery time is going to be extended. I chose not to have pin. I have a screw.im wondering if I made the right decision. I have a strong stomach, it doesn't bother me to watch cutting or anything

    Hi Bev I am now 10 weeks post scarf and akin osteotomy on left foot. I have what feels like a hard stone in middle of the foot underneath. Consultant said it's a result of offloading. Physio said to heel to toe walk and it will improve. It hasn't as yet. Under the ball of the original bunion is also painful. They do respond to non steroidal analgesia. But I don't want that forever. Let us know what your consultant says. It is frustrating, I am now 2 weeks post surgery on the right foot. Good luck

    Hi Bev...I also had a lump under the foot on the toe I had a pin in. My dr.told me it was scar tissue. I had physical therapy and a steroid ointment that had to be used with a cross friction procedure. What an ordeal! Four months later it is much better, minimal swelling at times and mild pain at time...even wore heels last week! Surgery was 2/13

    It was somewhat painful, but it did help. I would tell anyone having a bunionectomy and hammer toe work to expect at least 4-5 months before you feel somewhat normal. I still have a bit of discomfort at times, but minimal.
