Hi,
I was wondering if anyone has experienced consistant pain after 1 year of bunion surgery. I have been in pain for over a year now and I have been to 4 doctors with no luck of finding anything. Needless to say I am very discouraged and in pain every day. I am unable to walk long distances without being in pain to where I have to stop walking. I am then in pain all night.

Bone looks healed, no nerve damage, bunion has not come back, blood is flowing in bone. Those are all the things doctors have looked for.

Anyone have any thoughts I would love to hear them

Thanks,
Brian
I had surgery for other reasons but after the 2nd one I did have pain after 1 year. I had to have the joint cleaned out and that helped for awhile. I just had that joint fused and have had problems...if you have read any of my other post you will know.
If the pain interferes with your day to day life then yes, consider surgery. If it something you can live with then let it be. I have had 5 surgeries on my left foot now and hope this last one is the charm. You have to have trust in your DR. If you doubt them at all find another one. There are always risk when you have surgery and everyone will heal differently. Not all of my surgeries were bad, this last one was a nightmare but it will be OK. Be prepared and make sure you don't try to do things before you DR gives you the greenlight...listen to your foot, it knows when enough is enough. This board is great...it allows us to hear other stories of real people who have been through what we are going through and everyone seems to really care and encourage each other. i am so glad I came across it because it has really helped me to see that I am not alone and that things can be better.
Good luck to you! Heal well.
