Pain and swelling following bunion surgery and toe alignment

I had foot surgery on July 11, 2003, for a bunion problem on my right foot. I also had the big toe and little toe aligned. The big toe now has two screws in it. The surgery was painful and recovery long. It has been almost 2 months, and my right foot stll swells a great deal to the point where I cannot wear any of my shoes. I am back at work and am on my feet a great deal. My dr. says elevate it and take IB-600 mg @ day. I find it difficult to elevate my foot at work, but do ice it when I get home. Is this swelling normal for 2 months post-op???? The swelling pain is very uncomfortable by evening.
