Thanks for your query.
Swollen foot is common not uncommon after bilateral bunionectomies. Pain in leg muscle could occur due to spasm. doing muscle stretching exercise will be helpful to relieve the spasm. You can take ibuprofen for pain control.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
