i had a scarf osteotomy and akins procedure 13 weeks ago. My foot at the bunion site and at the base of my big toe is still really red, painful and swollen. I cant get a normal shoe on due to this. I had an appointment with the consultant this week as I had right foot surgery six weeks ago. He said that the permanent screw was causing the problem and may need to consider removing it. I asked what this entailed and he said it neded removing under general anaesthetic. Has anyone experienced this before.
my second foot is also extremely painful and swollen and he thinks that there is anon union of the bone and recommended to continue wearing the surgical shoe for a few more weeks. He said both complications were rare. How unlucky two rare complications, one in each foot. I thought I would be pain free at this point and ready for work. However, my feet hurt more now than previous. Have any of you also had experience with a non union. Thanks alot
