    Hi there! It depends how many weeks post op you are and what you had done!

    at 6 wks post op and when I had my plaster casts removed my big toe wouldn't move at all, I started doing ROM exercises 3 times daily and gradually have got full movement back. I am now 15 wks post op. Hope this us helpful.

      ROM =Range of Motion

      There are some very helpful post-op bunion exercises which you can look up on the web, lots have utube videos which show you what exercises to do and how do do them. Good luck!

    Yes I did, both moving up and down. I am now 10 weeks post op, it is still there when I move it downwards. It's like there is a ring around the base of your toe. I think it is swelling and scar tissue inside the toe. They will have moved all the tissue when straightening the toe so it's hardly surprising. Amanda
