I had a scarf and akin osteotomy on my left foot in February 2014. It healed well and I was mobile and without pain 8 weeks after the operation. I have had some swelling in the left foot when it gets hot between then and now which is painful but not too bad.
However, in the last month or so my foot has become very painful. I now have a small lump which is just below the surface of the skin. When pressed it feels very hard and I think it is the pin which is in the foot. I think it might have moved and this is what has been causing me pain. I don't remember doing anything out of the ordinary to cause this to happen though.
Has anyone had anything similar happen - movement of the pin after surgery? If so did you have to have further surgery to remove the pin?
I am due to go to the doctors next week to see if I can be referred back to the Hospital for an x-ray. I am also due to go and see the podiatrist as I need new insoles so they may also be able to advise me on this.
Any experiences from fellow osteotomy patients would be gratefully received though!
