After having surgery on both the 4th and 5th metatarsal with plates and screws holding everything I have pain on the ball of my foot. I haven’t yet started walking, I’ve been in no weight bearing. It’s been three weeks and a half since surgery and the bottom of my foot really hurts when pressed upon.
The ball of my foot hurts also when I do toe exercise such as curling in and out. Each visit to the doctor he tells me not to walk and put weight on my foot. I tell him each time that I can’t if I wanted to as it hurts to barely try.
After almost a month this doesn’t seem normal, is it? Should I be worried? I will ask the doctor about this on my next visit when he pulls out the k wire.
