I had my 2nd toe on both feet shortened to correct my hammer toes on 31 July 2014. I am now 11 weeks post surgery and am starting to get concerned as my left foot seems to be healing perfectly, although the toe is still slightly swollen I can see the bone structure a shape of my 2nd toe. My right foot 2nd toe is still very swollen (looks like a saussage) and the toe is slightly elevated. My consultant has suggessted I come in for an X-Ray (at the cost of £150) to see whats going on inside the toe. After paying a fortune for the surgery I am a bit reluctent to pay for the X-Ray unless absolutly necessary. Has anyone else experienced this problem, one foot healing faster than the other? If so how long before the swelling starts to go down and will me 2nd toe ever touch the ground again?
