Hemi Toe Implant surgery

It has been three months since I had a Hemi Toe Implant on my left great toe.  I have more constant pain since the surgery than I had before the surgery.

My left foot still has some swelling in it and I feel like I'm walking on a golf ball in the area where the surgery took place.  It is causing me to walk somewhat on the outside of my foot, which is causing pain in that area also.

I'm planning to call the doctor who did my surgery, but he is not good about listening to my questions, etc.  When I've asked questions in the past, he has been abrupt and somewhat rude.  I've seriously considered going to another doctor if I can't get some relief.  Do you have any suggestions or encouragement for me?

Thanks.

You should be only having minimal pain after 3-4 months.  Have you tried physical therapy?  Did the Dr. say that the implant was a success?  I would get more information from him and ask him to see why you are still in pain.  I recommend going back to see and perhaps getting a second opinion from another foot surgeon.
