I had my bunion removed with a v Chevron incision done and have a very large screw in my foot, as seen on my xray. I have beeen given no exercises and given a small sandal designed for heel walking only and crutches. Around the house i use one crutch but loger trips to the gate or shops (twice in 6 weeks!!) means both crutches. Any advice for ecercises or is it that the large screw is limiting any movement and that is why i get severe pain when i try anything clever!! The swelling has all but gone and my skin around the wound site looks brown and dead and is falling off but i guess that is the healing and remodelling going on. The toe however is still very crooked and veering to the right as it was prior to surgery, not too happy about that. To think I have been off work for 6 weeks for nothing is not making me too thrilled. Visit surgeon in 2 days for 6 week check up, so lets see what his thoughts are.
