I had a bunionectomy over 2 months ago...pain in my foot started to get bad a month after once i could bare full weight. Now, dr gave me cortisone injectiosn saying it may be related to the nerves...does this mean nerve damage? I took a fall one week after surgery and stepped on the foot that was suppose to be non weight bearing...pretty hard it was very painful....could i have caused this nerve damage myself or is it somethign the dr may have done during surgery. Anyhow, pain has calmed down after the shot but now 5 days later it feels like it is coming back...am i going ot have to get injections for the rest of my life or what? thanks for your time if anybody can help.
