post surgery pain

Posted by audrey on 4/11/01 at 10:36 (044251)

Hello and here is my question...I am four months post EPF surgery and am having to tape my foot because without taping I am in pain all the time.
My big concern though is that if I sit for even ten minutes, even with the foot taped, I experience a throbbing pain and swelling. Is this within any kind of normal range for where I am after the procedure? Beginning to question the judgement of my doctor. Thank you for you help.

Welcome to the club, Audrey. I didn't have the swelling, but I also had no relief. Mine was done 1.5 years ago and I am no better. Would you care to e-mail me, maybe we can exchange some 'what if's'
