Your foot may take a long time to settle after surgery, and most people’s foot pain will continue improving for a year and a half after an operation, sometimes over even longer periods of time.
Most surgeries aim to reduce pain in the foot or the ankle. Overall however no surgery can achieve this for everybody and a proportion of people will go on to have pain after their operation.
Ultimately all surgery has the potential to make you worse than you were when you sought treatment. This is why you need to make careful consideration of the risks of treatment ahead of your operation.
