Hi all. I am 9 weeks post op, right foot Taylor's bunion
plus 4th and 5th toe straightening. Was told recovery
expected to be 6 to 8 weeks, normal professions.
I am a post woman aged 52 so I expected a little longer
and asked advice from surgeon and he said 8 to 10.
My sick note runs out in two weeks. I am wearing
trainers size 7 1/2 when I take a six, I can't walk properly
at all and can only take small stiff steps. The joint
over my Taylor's bunion is wired and I have no movement
at all from the newly shaved joint. I feel like I will never
walk properly again ad my foot is always swollen, stiff
and sore. My 4th toe was cut horizontally and has been
constantly swollen for the entire time. The 5th toe was
cut laterally and is not so bad. Surgeon said not to ice
after first 2 weeks but nurse said yes????
Feel very disillusioned and fearful I will not be able to
return to my normal job. Anyone had similar????
