    Hello. I am a 29 year old female who had the Kidner procedure done on October 16th 2017. It is now November 12th 2017. I have currently had two follow up appointments after surgery, with the most recent being on November 7th. When the doctor ran his fingers up the bottom of my foot (in between removing one cast and replacing it with another) I had extreme pain in the ball of my foot and my toes, most noticeble behind my big toe where it bends. It was a sharp feeling of pins and needles. They took the stitches out on the 7th and said it was healing nicely, but the doctor did have the PA angle my foot a little more inward to take stress off of the nerves. I have read a bit about Complex Regional Pain syndrome and I worry it may be that. I understand self diagnosing from internet articles is the worst thing you can do for yourself and your peace of mind, but has anyone else had or heard of similar situations? I understand I am only 1 month out from surgery, and it needs time to heal as there will naturally be pain and swelling, but I also worry if I keep using that as an excuse I may be wasting critical time in a diagnosis and treatment in a timely manner leading to more damage.

    I have had a few different surgeries on my foot the most recent was on 10/10/2017, one of the 6 procedures that was done was a kidner procedure. What you describe sounds a lot like the nerve feeling I have had before weight bearing with each surgery. I found once you start walking it takes as much as a couple months to work out that nervy issue, it will take longer than that to feel close to normal. It is a process, be patient and listen to your doctor's instructions.
