I have a story very similar to yours. I am far worse off after this surgery and now I have severe pain in my top joint (IP joint). If you are still on this site, please let me know by emailing lisa.***@****. Thanks. Lisa
Tonice - I think it's time for you to get a second opinion, I had my surgery Sept. 26 and was able to put a sneaker on at about 2 1/2 weeks I had the hemi implant with the bunion removal - don't misunderstand it's still painful, stiff, swollen and burns but I actually was able to wear a shoe at about 3 weeks- for a while, and I really don't have trouble walking. I am hopeful that it will improve over time and I try not to baby it but your doctor doesn't seem to care- your surgery was a long time ago! you should be having some relief by now. Let us know how you're doing.
Just a quick note to say hi!
I don't know if it has been FDA approved but I think so. My doctor treats a professional hockey team. Nevertheless, I'm not doing well at all. I played golf yesterday, the first 18 holes since my surgery, Aug 5. I was in extreme pain by the fourth hole but kept playing--my limp became a joke because I still beat everyone, bad toe and all. I have a dr's appt on Tuesday--last time he put on some meds to relieve the numbness--it's not working---the toe gets very stiff, swollen and feels like it's on fire--now both of my feet hurt all the time because of the way I walk--just don't know what to do. Hope you feel better. Michael
