    Hi, two weeks ago I had an osteotomy to remove my bunion and straighten my big toe. I've now had the stitches out and the scar is very tender and around the site of what was the bunion, I can feel nothing. Would be interested to know whether anyone else has experienced the same and if so, how long it took to feel better. Look forward to hearing from anyone. Thank you!

    Please ask your questions in the designated area rather than this one which is intended for self-introductions by new members/posters.

    It is difficult to believe that there is much actual scar present only 2 weeks after surgery, so perhaps you mean that the incision line is tender. It is not uncommon for there to be some tenderness along the incision line and not uncommon that there is some degree of numbness in the area where the surgery was performed at this point after surgery. On the other hand, both symptoms may herald problems and should be brought to the attention of your surgeon for his/her evaluation. In general, especially such a short time after surgery, I would encourage you to ask questions directly to your surgeon rather than going on the Internet to obtain answers. Any responsible surgeon would not feel put upon by his/her patient's relating potential problems and asking questions.
