    Hi Louise - This also happened with me (same procedure) so I think it's probably common. My doctor gave me a little splint thing that held the toe down until it stayed down on its own. Ask your doctor before you go too much longer. The last thing we want is more surgery!! Good luck!

    the exact thing has occurred with me and along with working at physio trying to get my foot working again, my physiotherapist has been working on trying to manipulate my toe.

    I've been going twice a week to physio since the end of February with Zero results. My surgeon says if after 5 more months if it hasnt returned to the ash it shod be, he will have to shave the bone (s), as my other 3 toes are starting to roll over, ( but don't stick up like my one toe).

    Hate the idea of returning to have things cut open and goth the healing process of surgery ...just remember--everyone is different.
