I went to see Mr David Stock about the arthritis I was suffering in my big toe. He x rayed my foot and said I had a bone spur which needed removing. I asked him what the recovery time would be and he said 3 days and you would not need to wear a special shoe. Since then I have found out the recovery time is at least 3 months. I arrived at the hospital and met the physio therapist who came in to measure me for my shoe. I said Mr Stock said I did not need a shoe so she went and checked with him and confirmed I would be wearing a special shoe. I left hospital that day and have experienced excruciating pain since the operation. I was given no pain killers or pain management advice. I emailed his secretary to say how much pain I was suffering and she did not give me any advice just booked me in to see Mr Stock in 3 weeks time. I explained it was very painful and he advised me to have physio therapy. I did this and still no pain relief. I am having to go to my GP now to get painkillers and pain management advice. I would not recommend this surgeon as I feel I received no after care and was very much left to my own devices. He did not manage my expectations at all well re recovery time and pain.
