What can I expect after big toe fusion surgery?

You should expect a long recovery from big toe fusion surgery. The foot may be swollen and painful for six months to a year after the procedure. As the toe heals, you should notice a reduction in pain that allows you to return to living a normal life. Your activity will be slightly restricted because you cannot bend your toe. However, most patients return to their typical hobbies, including running and dancing.
