I had the surgery to have my bone spur removed on big toe 6 months ago.After the surgery i elevated my toe,iced my ankle and rested for about a week after the surgery.Shortly after that i had to return to college and brooklyn and the pain never lessed.At this point i am getting cortisone shots to reduce the pain and swellness within the toe.I have had 3 shots already and my doctor says i may need more.These shots have reduced the pain.Before all this happened i had my hangnail removed from my big toe.How long will it take for the pain to go away fully and without the shots?is this normal?
