... I am 3 months post op. I had the bunion cut down and the main toe bone broken. I had two pins to hold the toe stable. The pins were not pushed through and sat on nerves inside my foot. I think that no one knows what pain is until they have random nerve pain that you can't control. ... (28 replies)

... I had a bone taken out of the base of my big toe. The doctor made the incision along the whole outside of the big toe. I can feel the scar tissue on the side of the incision.

... Everything I have read about scar tissue, adhesions, and particularly keloids, is that if you go in and break it up, or tear it, or anything else, it just builds back again. This is my fear....it just continues to build up over and over again. ... (28 replies)
... i wound up with more scar tisssue on my 2nd toe just from hammertoe surgery. i followed everything the dr told me and my toe will not bend on its own. that was over 3 years ago. my new dr cleaned out all the scar tissue and it looks like a new toe. ... (28 replies)

... It is funny you should say that....I've noticed, and mentioned to my doctor, that the more I work at it, the more that I bend and flex the toe, the stiffer and more swollen it gets. I've told her we should just let it be right now. She insists that I continue to move it. ... (28 replies)
... Thats where I am stuck...things are so horrible now I want to try and make it better...but everyone around me including most docs are saying stop and deal with it. Easier said than done. If I had done that in the beginning I would be fine...but now I AM truly disabled. ... (28 replies)
