Hi

I had my op on right foot 12days ago. The bandages came off on Thursday and the pain is much worse than when I had my left foot done.  It feels like I have a clicking sensation in my toe has anybody else experienced this, worried in case screws or staple had moved. My surgeon said it was highly unlikely but I'm worried sick.

    Oh I hope this eases for you soon. I had my op 3days ago and it is getting easier each day. I am a bit apprehensive about plaster coming off. Will be interested to hear how you are getting on.

    I had that clicking sensation as well.  I am 7 weeks post op of a Lapidus Procedure, where they break the top of your bone (foot) for correction.   The first two weeks I had on a surgical soft split (kind of boot) and the twitching of my toes would hurt so bad.  It didn't hurt the screws.  I was happy to be put into a cast after the two weeks though.  That protected my foot much better from the clicking of toes.  I love your doctors choice of words "Highly unlikely of hurting your operation. "  Those were the exact words my surgeon used after I called him after falling on bad foot.  Rest and elavation is your friend!  Hang in there!  You will have a pretty foot soon!

      Hi lovelady

      The clicking in my toe has now gone but when I try to flex my toe upwards it feels as though something is blocking it.Did you or anyone else experience this. I'm going to see my consultant on Thursday so hopefully all will be well

    Hi Sharon, I had my bunion op back in May and did not experience this.  As you have had one bunion op already you know what to experience.  I would make an appointment with the surgeon to get his opinion and put your mind at ease.
