Second toe procedure

Posted by Wendy C on 9/08/03 at 19:04 (129198)

I had a small piece of bone removed from my second toe. The bone had started to protrude on the left side of my toe causing a great deal of pain. My surgery was 2 1/2 weeks ago and the doctor has started me on my second round of antibiotics because my toe is still red and swollen. I was still having draining from my toe up until two days ago. Should I be walking on my foot and exercising? I have been working the entire time and standing on my foot at least seven hours per day. It doesn't make since that it is so swollen to me and red.
