Stress fx of met: A previous bunion surgery can sometimes unload the big toe and overload the other toes leading to a stress reaction or fracture in the metatarsal bone. Other possibilities include arthritic change, nonhealing of bunion surgery, neuroma.

Kindly rephrase : I am having difficulty understanding if you are currently post op with a pin, if so how long post op? As pain and swelling do occur after bunion surgery.

Pain: Unfortunately , we need a bit more info. Such as when the surgery was done etc. Also , is the pain on the bunion surgery foot ? Even if that is yes , there are a lot of causes of this pain and transfer pain is just one . See your podiatrist or treating physician for help.
