bone spur 2nd metatarsal

Last July had surgery for a bone spur on 2nd metatarsal. Dr. went to top of the foot to release the capsule. Not healing. Foot is swollen on the bottom and the toe next to the big one hurts to bend it. Have to wear much cushioning in order to wear any shoes. I now use biofreeze or sports cream in order to walk. Foot is kind of numb only around the ball of the foot. Went to another foot dr and was told to use orthodotics. I cannot wear them with my foot this way. I do better barefoot. Any suggestions
