Bunion Surgery
Dec 26, 2007
Had surgery on my left foot which included the bunion, cut & reposition the bone from the big toe to the ankle, a neuroma and placement of a pin in the second toe to strighten. Because the main bone was cut I was directed to not put any weight on the foot for six to seven weeks and use a wheel chair for transportation.
After four weeks I developed a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) blood clot and my question now after understanding what happened is....Should I have been informed by my Doctor of the possibility of having a DVT, what to look for and how to prevent it such as leg exercise or post op blood thinners?
