... Some days are better than others. I've noticed a lot of it seems to depend on the weather and how humid it is. I'm hoping I'm just still in that healing after surgery phase, but I get a little more nervous as each month goes by without seeing a whole lot of change. Maybe more is happening than I think. ...

... It wasn't until after my pins were removed (4 weeks postop) that I was allowed to do any kind of movement with my foot. Then after that I was told to start by holding my foot and gently pushing it up and down, the toe. Also, partial weight bearing for a week or two after the pin removal.

... At 10 weeks, having had a similar procedure, I was still in alot pain. In fact, i was in alot of pain up through the 4th month, as I struggled to regain ROM, in my big toe joint. Now, at 5 1/2 months postop, my pain has travelled to the arch of my foot and the ball of my foot, as I try to increase my activity level, though it's much less than the first 4 months. I'm a...

... I have 2 pins, in my bone, above my big toe. They'll come out, if they start to bother me. As of now, 4 months postop, it's a little comforting knowing they are there, holding the bone in place. It can take bone a full 12 months to heal, so, I'm in no hurry to remove them. (8 replies)
... My downward bend is pretty good. I'm not as flexible as you, but it's improving. I've achieved close to a 90 degree upward flexion by doing pretty painful PT, using my body weight to bend it and my hand. My foot swells after these sessions, but a few weeks ago I was only 45 degrees. Keep at it. I found bending in hot water to be the easiest, when I used my hand. Can you... (28 replies)

... I think most people here, with bunionectomies, are striving to achieve better ROM. Most have a stiff toe joint. That seems to be a common theme. I am doing aggressive PT, which does cause some pain and swelling, 4 months postop, but, from what I understand, you really have to work hard to work the toe joint. I am making slow progress, but I have to do my PT several times a... (19 replies)
... I agree Cosmic, doing PT and learning how to stretch and bend the toe and regain ROM is sooooo important. At almost 4 months postop, I'm pretty stiff, especially in the morning, but I work through what sort of feels like arthritic pain to achieve a better stretch. I do something every hour and as time passes and I'm trusting the bone healing more, I'm trying to be more... (22 replies)

... When I walk now, 3 months postop, I also feel that "bony" feeling. It has subsided some, but I still get residual swelling and some sharp pains. My arch aches, but if I do PT, that subsides.
