My big toe is partially numb after my sesamoidectomy 3 weeks ago. Will the numbness go away? How long does this take?
Probably, months: Depending on what sesamoid was taken out, some nerves can get stretched or damaged. A stretched nerve will usually recover over a few months but improvement may continue for up to 18 months. A damaged nerve may recover, bit there may be some permanent numbness. Only time will tell and there is not much to do in the meantime. ...Read more

I just had a sesamoidectomy 2 weeks ago, how long until I can return to work and normal activities?
Touchy surgery.: There are two sesamoid bones. Either one can be totally or partially removed, for a variety of reasons. Normal activities and work vary from person to person. Because of so many variables, your best answer to the post operative time frame is best answered by the surgeon who performed the work and is familiar with your lifestyle particulars. In general, this surgery is often unpredictable. ...Read more
What do you advise if I'm getting a sesamoidectomy tomorrow and I was wondering how long the surgery is?
How long does a "full" recovery usually take after a sesmoidectomy? Worst little injury I have ever had and I have had a lot. I am over 12 months post op and still have pain and possibly related "referred pain" to the base of my 4th and 5th toes at the
You have two sesamoid bones, but since you made reference to an injury, I'm going to assume you fractured your tibial sesamoid, which is the one furthest away from the pinky toe, and the one more exposed, less protected, and more susceptible to injury.
The sesamoids act as fulcrums and are invested in one of the flexor tendons near the bottom of the big toe, and their purpose is to give more leverage (power) to the flexor tendons as to equate the power of the extensor tendons. When a tibial sesamoid is removed, two things are usually also done: the extensor tendon of the big toe is lengthened (to offset the loss of power of the flexor tendon after the sesamoid is removed), and a special type of repair is made to the joint capsule of the big toe to prevent it from turning in, which can occur after the tibial sesamoid is removed.
So not only are you facing the consequences of walking on this thing for a year, but you also probably had more stuff done than just have the sesamoid removed.
Nevertheless, now at 12 months post-op, you shouldn't really be limping.
I recommend you get a second opinion. ...Read more

I had tibial sesamoidectomy 4 weeks ago. I had 2 pt apts. This week. After both pt sessions, I was bedridden with pain. Should pt be this painful?
No: Pt can be uncomfortable, but "bedridden with pain" goes too far. Be sure to communicate this with your pt, and if at all in doubt, let your surgeon know you are still in so much pain. Four weeks out you should be feeling better. Most importantly communicate what your feeling with your doctor. Wishing you'all the best. ...Read more
I had surgery last November on my right foot. It was a plantar fibular sesamoidectomy. I experience sharp pain on a specific spot on the scar. Normal?
No, but can happen.: Foot surgery, especially in the area of the sesamoid bones, is not without risk. Incisions always leave scar tissue and the scared tissue can sometimes cause residual pain in the incision site area. It is important to consider this risk, even more so, when a plantar incision is made. ...Read more

Every fertility center has different recommendation on when to try and conceive. In our center we usually recommend one month of waiting before attempting a pregnancy. The area around the scar can take a while before feeling normal again. ...Read more
Repair of stricture.: Would discuss recovery with surgeonGet a more detailed answer ›
Depends on reason: Omentectomy is a procedure where the lining of the abdominal cavity, the omentum is removed. But this is usually done for a certain reason, in many cases associated with cancer debunking operations, such as for ovarian or gastric cancer. This is often a fairly large open operation, so healing is varied and dependent on what reason it was done for, if for cancer, what the extent of involvement is. ...Read more

Deep cleaning: You are likely talking about post operative discomfort. It all depends on how bad your gum disease is.

The latter being very unusual. Warm salt water rinses a few times a day will help. Hang in there ...Read more
