Hi, all! I just had bunion removal surgery on July 3rd, and had my follow up appointment this past Tuesday. My doctor made 3 incisions (one by big toe, one a little further down, and one between my big and second toes). I’m still having a good bit of pain, and my doctor seemed surprised. He originally wrote a prescription for Norco 325 mg and Motrin 800 mg. He’s already had to refill the Norco. I was originally in a splint and bandage, but at my follow up he re-dressed my foot up to about my ankle and put me in a boot. I’m still non weight bearing, though. Anyway, he was expecting me to be off the Norco at this point in my recovery. I try to just take the Motrin and wait for it to kick in before I decide if I need the Norco as well. The pain is a sharp, stabbing pain in top of my big toe along with the incision site a little further down. It gets excruciating at times for a few seconds. Has anyone dealt with this or something similar? I’m sorry for the long post, but I wanted to include everything! Thanks, y’all!
