Tailor's Bunionectomy and PF Release

Posted by Dee C on 7/23/04 at 13:57 (156129)

It has been since May 28th, and still hurts and is swollen. Have tried all types of shoes but the bump still sticks out. Just tissue I was told; but how long does it take for the swelling to go down generally? Should I tape it or wrap it or bandaid it? Would really appreciate an opinion. Had PF release surgery on other foot same day. That still hurts too, of course, if I am on it too much. Am I being too impatient or what?

Dee:
Plantar fascial release surgery can take a long time to heal. Without actually seeing the area about the tailor's bunion, it is hard to say if the amount of swelling is excessive. Physical therapy can help swelling go down faster and speed relief on the plantar fascial release.
