Hi just wondered if anyone knew why and if this has happened to you
I am 8 weeks post op on left foot Hallux Valagus op
Two pins in side and staple in big toe to hold it over
I rang the hospital two weeks ago and voiced me concerns that I felt it was going over, twice I rang and nobody got back to me so I took it as I must of been over reacting as foot was swollen
Have apt today for X-ray and the big toe is leaning inwards
Consultant was concerned , she said I may have to have further surgery in six months if this doesn't correct itself
She said it is swollen but that wouldn't make the toe lean inwards
I have gel spacers which are fine but after a bit toe leans inwards again
She insisted I havnt done anything wrong it's just how he toe has reacted to surgery
I am hating the fact it's not really worked and all this for nothing!
Has this happened to you? Do you know why it happened
Any information will be gratefully received
