After surgery?

I had toe surgery 2 months ago and it is almost healed up now. I had glass in my right big toe for 6 months. Now the wound is hard and my toe is a still a bit bigger then my other toe I don’t know what to do and I’m getting worried why is it hard? It doesn't feel soft or anything.

My answer is the same, as long as the wound has healed.
Massages are with topical steroids TID. You may have vitamin deficiency. Check Vit D/B6/B12 levels and iron panel.
Swelling after surgery can last 6-12 months after surgery. You are healing fine
Talk to your parents or guardian so they are aware of the situation and a follow up appointment with the surgeon who performed the procedure may be a good idea
Could be a cyst. May need further excision. Not uncommon. Get it checked.
Go and see a podiatrist.
