Hallux Valgus (Bunions) :: Ice Your Foot To Reduce Swelling After Bunion And Hammertoe Surgery?

It is just over 3 weeks since I had bunion and hammertoe surgery. In the mornings the swelling is reduced a lot but after being out and about in the walker boot the bunion area (big toe and surrounds) and two hammer toes are quite swollen. I do keep my foot elevated for as much of the time as possible but have not tried ice yet. Does this have any permanent benefit and how does one do it without leaking water everywhere? Can I just buy bags of ice from supermarket and apply to ankles or is there a more effective technique? Also how long did most people use the walker boot for. My surgeon said about four weeks after the op to come out of it and move into trainers but opinions seem to differ and I don't see him for a few more weeks? Sorry to keep asking for advice but I live alone and don't get to see many people at moment.; I tend to worry a lot about all this as I hear horror stories on internet about things going wrong and swelling not going down?

Bone / Joint :: Pain After Bone Spur/arthritis Surgery On Shoulder

I had surgery on June 14, 2011 to remove a bone spur on my left clavicle and to remove arthritis near (but not in) my shoulder joint.  It was the worse experience of my life. I was in constant agonizing pain for 2.5 months. Just for the record, I've had two ulnar nerve surgeries on my left AND right elbows and never even needed pain medication. This shoulder surgery apparently did not relieve any of my pain. I still have a dull aching pain through out the day starting in my neck (left side) to my shoulder, and down my bicep to my elbow.  I still can not sleep at night, and through out the day while working my shoulder/arm/ neck is killing me. I continue to take an Naproxin and continue to rotate heat and ice. I did physical therapy for the first two months after surgery. My concern is that had arthroscopic surgery, and there was NO rotator damage so why is my shoulder still in pain? My shoulder pops when I do try to rotate it.. and often when I simply reach outward for something..I'm in excruciating pain. I'm a baker, so I am constantly lifting a 34-50lb metal mixing bowl and have to reach many times through out the day. There really is no way to not do my job duties and still retain my job. Any ideas why I'm still having this problem?

Recovery Time? Plantar Fascia Release With Heel Spur Removal

7 weeks ago I had plantar fascia release with heel spur removal surgery (also PTT repair, Achilles decompression, and Peroneal tendon decompression in same surgery). Anyhow, I am hoping someone can share their post-op experiences regarding how long before you were able to walk; when did the sensitivity in your heel resolve, and did you have any short-term or long-term nerve injury issues?

Orthopedics :: Bone Spur And Torn Hip Lining - Pain After Surgery

December 2013 had a tkr on my right knee, and the day I cam home from the hospital, I complained on I couldn't lay on my right side. After 2 year of cortisone shots, physical therapy and x rays, doctor took an MRI and told me that I have a bone spur and a torn hip lining. Had surgery for that, and I am still in pain now from both the groin area and the hip. Now I am being told that I need a new hip. Not sure that I want to go through that.

Ankle Surgery And Bone Spur :: Spinal Vs. General Anaesthetic?

Two years ago I broke my ankle and had pins and plates put in. On Monday I am having them taken out because they are irritating my tendon. I am also having a 'bone spur' basically shaved off and they are going to 'explore' the damage done to the tendon.

When I had them put in I had a general anaesthetic, but I wasn't asked what I'd prefer. This time, at a different hospital I have been.

I don't know what to do for the best. Obviously I can talk about this when I arrive on Monday I'd just like people opinions on which they prefer and why. Or even which they think would be suitable for my surgery.

I was fine after my anaesthetic last time, no side effects etc I just think I feel more comfortable not being 'put to sleep'... just in case. I'm a bit of a worrier!

I am leaning towards opting for the spinal anaesthetic combined with a bit of sedation as I do think I may get anxious. The only thing that is putting me off is what I will hear. Obviously they will be using screwdrivers etc and the thought of hearing them and knowing what they are doing makes me feel a little queasy!

Bone / Joint :: Pain On Ball Of Foot After Bunion Surgery

I had bunion surgery about 5 months ago. I'm 16 years old and have severe bunions on both feet. I play sports and am constantly running around and going through a lot of shifting and moving. before the surgery the pain was unbearable and felt like I had two broken toes. I went to the doctor after a few years to when the pain was just too much and he told me I needed surgery. I chose to do one foot at a time because I wouldn't be able to walk on it for about 6 weeks so I chose the one that hurt more. I had nerves being pulled on the side by the bunion and my toe was shifted to the side. Now 5 months after I am in the same about of pain as before and then some. My big toe is not only still numb( which the doctor told me was apart of the normal healing process) but the big toe also does not touch the ground. The pain is so bad when I am playing basketball that I need to stop. It's the bottom of my foot under the big toe and around where the bunion was removed that hurts it feels like pins and needles and like I'm walking on rocks. It's very tender on the area, should I be worried/get this checked out? Or should I just deal with it?

Plantar Fibromatosis After 20 Years Of Plantar Fasciitis

I have suffered from plantar fasciitis for over 20 years. I have had special inserts made, bought and bought inserts, bought and bought shoes, I am now BROKE. I have had so many cortisone shots in both feet I can no longer get them, I have nerve damage in my left foot. Last year I was diagnosed with palmar fibromatosis, and also plantar fibromatosis. I had surgery on my hand, and the knots came back worse, the knots in my feet are getting really bad. I can barely walk. I am on my feet 7 1/2 hours of 8 hours (no breaks except lunch), and I walk and walk, and my feet are killing me. I have cried until I have no tears left. I can not find a doctor willing to do surgery on me. They say they don't want to take the risk. I have even traveled far away for a treatment that I hear works, but that doctor said I had too much scar tissue to do the procedure.

I am at my wits end, I am in such HORRIBLE shape. I have seriously thought about laying down on the railroad tracks and letting it cut my feet OFF.
I live in Virginia, does anyone know of a doctor that can help me? What should I do?

Plantar Fasciitis :: Methods That Can Help

I have Plantar Fasciitis for a month. I have tried many methods including anti-inflammatory medicine and plaster, soak in hot water [which makes it worst], etc..... I don't believe in western medication as anti-inflammatory will merely stop you from feeling the pain temporary and steroid injection has side effects.

I believe the below will help:-

1) No running or high impact exercise

2) Taking homeopathy medicine

3) Reduce weight [as I am overweight]

4) Have correct posture in standing and walking

5) Wear special shoes for heel pain or insert heel pain relief sole into my working shoes

6) Go swimming which is a good exercise for PF

I believe the above will speed up my recovery ......

Lastly, have faith in myself!

Plantar Fasciitis :: Hip Arthroscopy Relieved It

I don't know if this will help anyone, but thought I'd post it in case it does. I had been suffering from painful plantar fasciitis for 5 months with no relief from painkillers, icing, physio exercises or stretching. Then 4 weeks ago I had a hip arthroscopy that meant my leg being put in traction for the procedure. I woke up with the plantar fasciitis completely gone, and so far there are no signs of it returning. I wondered whether there are any physiotherapists or other medical professionals that may be able to offer some sort of traction treatment to give that extra stretch to the muscles to relieve or possibly even get rid of plantar fasciitis for others. It might be worth considering as a treatment option if there are no other risks associated.

Heel Pain :: Plantar Fasciitis Or Tendonitis?

I have had this going on for 3 years now and still no closer to an outcome. The pain is in the back of both heels and when touched is really painful. I have had xrays, ultrasounds and an MRI for Plantar and tendonitis but both have been ruled out as nothing showing up. The symptoms led them to believe it was one or the other ie Plantar or Tendonitis, I can hardly walk when I get out of bed and when I point my toes to the air it pulls around the back of my heel. As I work in retail and I'm on my feet all day my feet ache the longer the day goes on and by the time I get home I shuffle along as the pain hurts too much. Once I sit down and rest for as little as 10 minutes I feel everything tighten up and is hard to walk. I have now been told by my the consultant that he doesn't think the pain is in my feet and if it is he can't find it so has now made me an appointment to see the spinal team that's if they are willing to see me. Surely if I am in pain and can't get through a day without any then surely there must be a problem somewhere. At 40 years old I find myself not being able to do the things I love like long distance walking and being out in the fresh air instead. I spend most of my free time resting my feet so I can be ready for the following day as its a constant struggle with the pain.

Plantar Fasciitis :: Both Feet - Steroid Injections?

I've had PF in one foot for best part of a year, now in both feet for the last 4 weeks. Im in excruciating pain as I'm sure most people who suffer from PF can relate to. Painkillers I have been prescribed up till now are useless but my GP is giving me stronger ones for when I go on holiday in 2 weeks so I can walk around hopefully. He has told me that when I return from hols, I will be having steroid injections. I'm interested to know what other sufferers think regarding this and also if it has helped the people who have had the injection.
