I had a bunion op on the 27 July, healing well and in only a little pain. The second toe had been pushed slightly up by the big toe but was not a problem for me in any way. The sugeon told me that he would need to loosen the tendon to the second toe so it could drop into place. But, and it is a big but, it has dropped down below the other toes and the toenail end is curling up and it is now impossible to wear anything other than the surgical shoe. The swelling has gone down sufficiently for me to wear a wide sandel or shoe, but because the second toe is curling underneath, I simply cannot slide my foot into any of my footwear. Has this happened to anyone else and, if so, did you need another operation to correct it? Am seeing my consultant next Monday and I am dreading the outcome.
