Its 7 weeks since my metatarsalcuiform fusion on my right foot.
I came out of the aircast 12 days ago and currently weaning off crutches (as instructe). I have been starting to do a little at home without the crutches for the last 2 days. Nothing taxing, just whilst cooking so from fridge to stove, etc. I noticed yesterday an odd sensation under the ball of my toe. At first it felt like my sock had bunched up under my foot but it seems not. I did a comparison between my two feet and nothing looks out of order and they felt the same when I had a good prod around the joint, however, as soon as I put weight on it, it feels odd. Could this be due to the swelling and that I am starting to use it...and settle over time? Its all been smooth sailing until now. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
