In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
