I had the surgery mid March.. My foot is not much bteter.. I can not bend my big toe downward at all.. When I walk my foot is very very sore. I used the word painful when I saw my Doctor 3 weeks ago, and he preferred the word sore ?? Anyway, running is out of the question. I walk daily as prescribed by my doctor. After my walk my foot is very sore,and the joint turns a purplish blue.. Another part of my surgery was to remove some cartilage in my big toe( due to the pallet falling on my foot) the cartilage was dead or dying.. When I try to walk with out shoes it feel like by big toe joint is right on the ground with no skin or tissue between . It hurts so I just dont do it. Running is out of the question as is getting on my tip toes.. I was trying to do some normal activities , picking up broken branches in my yards, and my left foot slipped onto some uneven ground and oh my gosh, the pain was so so bad and my foot was swollen. so I iced it again.. MY question is will I ever be able to return to my physical job ? I drive a tractor and have to press a clutch over 100 times a day, climb in and out of the tractor, and yeah stack pallets. The pallet fell from the stack from about 5 and landed on my left foot and that is when the nightmare began. If anybody has has similar problems I would appreciate your reply.. I have been out since last year and since it is a workers comp injury, I had to wait six months before the surgery was approved.. Now my concern is I may not be able to do my job..
