I am a very healthy 31 year old cosmetologist. So my feet are very important to me! I had what was suppose to be a bunionectomy in Dec.2008, I have recently found out that it was a bunion repair. I have not been told what the name of the surgery was, so let me explain the best I can. The doctor made 2 incesions the first between the first and second metatarsal, where he cut the tendon and tied it to the bones then he made one across where the big toe and foot meet and he shaved bone from the joint. I ended up with a staph infection and over the course of the first month after surgery I tryed 4-5 different antibiotics. None seemed to do much good. I went to see my family doctor because the foot doctor released me. My family doctor found what appeared to be a forigen body. We had that removed and sent to pathology. After that surgery I felt great for about 2 weeks. Now almost 5 month later I have seen 4 specialist and have gotten 4 different answeres. My foot hurts so bad at time that I could cry. I can prop it up and it swells, I can leave it down and it swells, it is always either purple or red. Just depends on what color it wants to be for the moment. I am at my witts end and wondered if you could offer me any information.
