post bunionectomy deformity


I had a chevron bunionectomy procedure done in January of 05′. I am deployed overseas and had an accident jumping off an aircraft that was off the ground about 2-3 feet. I now have pain and noticied my big toe in now tucked underneath the second toe. I am in great pain, x rays do not show anything abnormal and Army doctors can’t figure out what is wrong. My big toe was properly aligned after surgery, now it is back to its deformity before I had surgery. Can anyone help me with this issue?


  1. Where are your records and x-rays from before and after your surgery and the most recent x-rays. If they are all in the military, I can’t imagine they would release them. What you describe does not sound normal.
