Stubbed toe

I stubbed my right toe, near top of nail, 2 days ago, have pain in the sight where there are 2 pins and plate in place from major bunion surgery 18 months ago …hurts when pressing on brakes when driving or if I flex upward, some swelling near surgical sight, but not like a balloon. Should I be concerned?

    Hello and thank you for your question. I would need to see a picture of your foot to see exactly where you are describing. If you are referencing your nail then you are not within the area of bunion surgery and hardware. Most likely the bunion surgery is totally fine and you are dealing with more of a irritated nail. You can go see a Podiatrist or Urgent Care Center to get an Xray and evaluate the toe. I always recommend erring on the side of caution to make sure nothing is fractured. I hope this helps!
