... Some swelling is still normal at this point. Lack of doing the exercises could be the cause of your pain though some soreness will persist after several months. This is a procedure that takes about 12 months for full recovery. ... (6 replies)

... I get the stitches out tomorrow, and presumably will get exercises of some sort to do. ... (5 replies)
... The foot hurt today but I took some aleve and it seemed to help. I also took a shower and the warm water helped it. The part that really hurts is where the incision is. I think the nerves are still confused as to what happened, LOL. I've been doing the exercises-they seem to help the stiffness. My Doctor said there was no cartilage on one side so she told me to make sure... (9 replies)
... Sue: I had to wear the surgical shoe for a few days after the stitches were removed. Just a little too much swelling. But it was probably on 4 or 5 days. After that I wore some snug fitting Merrell clog style shoes. Very sturdy, easy to slide into and were snug enough to stay on without having to grip with my toes. Dont forget to do the exercises!

... I only know one person personally who had both done at one time. He could walk but it was very slow going. I'm surprised they are saying you will be NwB for two weeks as it is normal to walk from day one with this procedure. Are they doing other things beyond a simple cheilectomy (cleaning out of spurs and chips?). I had one with an osteotomy to remove the bump on top the... (18 replies)
... I had a cheilectomy on Dec 19 2008..little over a year ago. I no longer have the bump or pain on TOP of the toe joint...but now I have a bump on the outside of the big toe joint. ... (8 replies)
... During the day it loosens up and I can walk quite well for extended periods. Feels best after exercises but the mobility never lasts. Sometimes the whole forefoot cramps up. My PT told me that my high arches and generally rigid bone structure is probably to blame. ... (5 replies)
... At this point you should be able to bend it enough and the swelling should be gone. Have you been doing your exercises? ... (5 replies)
... Hi PV, Yeah...I think you're probably right about the reasons behind the doctors and nurses and incompleteness of their advice/ responses etc. I couldn't agree more on asking questions....be sure to write the buggers down though. Too many times I've gone to the doctor/surgeon and asked questions...then after I've left the appointment - I've remembered at least a dozen... (45 replies)
