Where did you get the Pedifix?? and the elastic sleeve? I looked at Walgreens and couldn't find any sleeve. I do wrap my foot at night and support my arch and cushion the ball of my foot, in a variety of ways. I just try different things. The menthol gels helps some, hot water therapy can help, ice can help.... I got a little cortisone put in, above the big toe joint..to early to know if that helps. I get alot of pain in the ball of my foot and the arch can flair up too. From month 3 to recently, I had agonizing scar pain. Massage has helped. I have good ROM, but there is pain with early morning and late day stiffness.......My foot just doesn't feel normal. Now, my little bunionette, after I had the bunion fixed (austin/akin procedure..2 cuts, with internal pins and wire in big toe) is pushing out, by my little toe....growing like a mushroom. It was barely noticeable, prior to my bunionectomy. It's grown within 3 months. I'll probably have to get that fixed but I won't even attempt to deal with that little bunionette, until I know I'm 90% healed from this first bunionectomy, by my big left toe. Now, I just hope everyone is fully aware of how hard it can be to recover from this surgery and that there might by chronic pain issues afterwards, in other parts of your foot. I don't know. Maybe then I wouldn't have even attempted the surgery, but I do know people need to understand it can take a toll on your physical, emotional and spiritual health, since the recovery can be exhausting and wrought with frustration, not to mention finding your doctor, postop, will start to minimize your concerns, 8 weeks postop, when you aren't on the ideal healing schedule. If you are preop, find the best empathetic experienced doctor, in your area and still get 2-3 opinions, to be fully informed, especially since there are so many techniques.
I will be 15 weeks out tomorrow and still limping and hurting. I can't help but wonder if something is wrong. I see the doctor next week for x-rays. I am going to express my dissatisfaction with him. I don't know whether to see another doctor for another opinion of the surgery. I called my doctor's office and they charge $10 for the first x-ray and $8 for any additional. I don't think I have to pay for the x-ray reports. Does anyone have any advice for me?
don't get down about it just yet.. I had a lot of problems for the first 3-4 months afterwards.. it got exponentially better after that. It still took about 9 months total to really feel healed. It just depends on how are body reacts. I had two bunionette surgeries years before and bounced back from both within 8 weeks, but the bunion surgery didn't go so well.
