foot pain 1 yr after bunionectomy
I still have much pain on the bottom (balls) of my foot while any amount of walking. It has been 1 yr since my austin buntmy, swelling, sharp burning sensation still hurt badly. It feels as though there is a bone sticking out under the the ball of the big toe area. I amm beginning to have knee pain because of the abnormal walking I have been doing. My doc says keep wearing the orthodics, but my foot is in such pain and swollen after a couple of hours of wearing them.
At one year post surgery most people will either have no pain or every once in a while feel a little discomfort. You are nowhere near that. I would suggest you get a second opinion; just being told to wear your orthotics is not going to solve your problem one year down the road.
