Re: Nerve Pain 8 months Post Bunionectomy
Crystal, can you tell me what tests you had to confirm the cause of your ongoing pain after your bunionectomy? Also, are your activities expected to be limited in any way now that you've lost some feeling, for example weight-bearing activities? I had a bunionectomy in February and am regretting it now, suffering with virtually every step and losing hope that I will ever be able to enjoy hiking or yoga again. My physiotherapist is suggesting a cortisone injection so she can really "get at" the scar tissue without the intense pain the pressure causes. She also mentioned that a bone scan might be useful to determine if something has shifted since the surgery - the two post-op x-rays were perfect (according to the surgeon). I am reluctant to continue down the medical intervention path but don't see much in the way of options. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
