Re: sore heel after bunion surgery

: Had extensive bunion surgery eight weeks ago and just recently started to walk. Everything was fine for 3-4 days with no pain. Since then I have developed a very painful heel and cannot walk with pressure on it at all. Too painful. What should I be doing. Resting?
: Walking? A little of both? Help>

Cindy, it sounds like you may have just put some excessive strain on the heel, especially if you have been non-weight bearing for eight weeks.

Ice and a anti-inflammatory drug, such as ibuprofen (if no allergies), may help.

If it continues, you should see your surgeon.
