Being so long in a cast will make your foot and toes very stiff. I'd ease back into gentle ROM and if possible go to PT. Use hot water therapy and ice. If you have scar tissue, start to massage that, because it will also help with ROM. I am 6 months postop, from an akin.austin bunionectomy and I was in alot of pain. I never wore a cast for more than 8 weeks, but, ugh, was I painfully stiff, in the big toe area. I had to go through some painful PT. It will take weeks of rehabilitation. Just wanted to tell you you're not alone. Even now, I still have aches and pains around my surgery site. Progress is slow, but we are here to root you on.........
