Hi I'm 8wk post op bunionectomy. I Still have significant swelling in my big toe area with moderate stiffness. My doc says this is normal? Opinions?

In brief: Without seeing

Xrays and examining your foot difficult to say.
I would ask the doc a few questions. 1) is there something we can do to reduce this swelling? Do you think I need physical therapy? 2) do you feel dynamic motion would help?
