Re: post-bunionectomy recovery

I had a bunionectomy in mid-July 2003. I followed exactly what the doctor told me for recovery. My foot was propped up almost at all times. After my stiches were removed he (the doctor) told me to feel free to put on cream/lotion on the wound so that the incision could begin to heal. My husband was present when he told me about the cream. The incision soon began to reopen. The doctor claimed that he never said anything about the cream. He stary stripped the wound. The foot now works. If can fit into shoes. I no longer wear pointed shoes period. However, the wound still looks quite ugly. My brother says that I should see a lawyer. The doctor's attitude in October was it works and scar will heal soon. What should a scar look like at this time frame? My scar is still purplish and has a swollen look to it.

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Super easy strap adjustment for a custom fit with solid ankle support.
