I am one and a half year post bunion surgery of my right foot, and am having a very difficult time. As soon as I was able to walk after surgery, I felt a tiny rub on the bottom of the foot, but just assumed it's normal after surgery, six month after, resumed normal activities, doing Zumba, Spinning, hiking, which may have contributed to the problem I am having now. There was always a tingle, an ache, big toe area always stiff and frozen. I mentioned it at checkups, but the surgeon didn't seem to be concerned about it.
Begining of June (6 weeks from the day of this email), the foot started feeling numb, and shooting pain along the big toe area.
Your blog is the best information I can find online, and I just don't know what to do. The new Dr. did send me to Physical Therapy.
Thank you so much for your time, I do hope to find answers from you.
