Sorry you are having pain in your foot. Please consult with a foot and ankle orthopaedic surgeon. Studies show stress fractures of the proximal 1st phalynx are associated with hallux valgus. Painful nonunion of a fracture is diagnosed by serial radiographs and can have biological or mechanical causes. Physical exam and imaging probably an MRI since you have had an operation in area. Ultrasound?
