Hi I'm 4 weeks post op (right foot & the lesser op of of no fusion) and had cast & bandaging removed yesterday. Was looking forward to getting it all off as at 1 week post op my surgeon took it all off to check & it looked amazing. No swelling or bruising to see and totally straight big toe but with a large gap between big & next toe! He said not to worry that as I started to use it the gap would reduce. Cast was put back on & fresh bandaging. Now it's huge, very swollen & looks bigger bunion than ever (was not a bad one in the first place). Also my big toe is bending completely over to the next toe! Can Now drive (although haven't yet) as was only yesterday evening got it removed. I did ask him about the swelling & he said can take a couple of months! Anyone else had the same experience?
