    I didn't have any problems with my legs or knee pain. I had my surgery July 6 the only pain I had and still have, although it is not as painful as it was when I first had the surgery and that pain is in my big toe. I would check with the Dr. to see what caused that.

    I think you really need to go to emergency room and get checked for a blood clot. Better safe than sorry.

    I hope you are doing good and the pain in your leg wasn't anything serious. Good luck with your bunion recovery. My Dr took my off my crutches today for short distance walks.... I'm so excited!

      Excellent!  Good luck and all the best.  My pain has disappeared after I massaged my thighs on a regular basis and applied voltarol.  I am in more pain than last time, especially around forefoot and where my bone of the bunion was shaved off.  I have doctor’s appointment next week and will be put in fibreglass cast if all is ok.
