Re: arthoplasty fourth and fifth digit

: While it is common for swelling to occur after this procedure for many weeks, there are factors that you may not be aware of. Such as the specific procedure that was done. Were there any pertinent differences the doctor encountered during the procedure? Have you been doing anything unusual with that foot during the healing process? Have you have a discussion about your concerns with your doctor? Ask your doctor to recommend a shoe. There are even some post op shoes that have the toe area covered.
