Bunion - not sclero related

6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone :) just curious as to whether anybody here has ever had an operation on a Bunion?

 

I'm looking into having it done but haven't heard of anyone who has had it done before.

Hello Lou

 

Sorry but the answer is no. I didn't even know what a bunion was so I went a googling and found at WebMD details that may be of use to you about the condition itself and surgery.

 

From the looks of the picture bunions must be really painful and if that's the case for you I hope you get relief from the surgery.

 

Take care.

Hi Lou,

 

I haven't actually got a bunion as such; I have a lump rather like a bunion where a horse jumped on my foot and did the "hokey-cokey" on it and it's never been the same since!! :lol:

 

However, when I was having the decompression operation for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome on a day surgery ward there were definately other patients there who were having bunions operated on and in fact I got chatting with a very nice lady who'd come in for exactly that operation.

Thanks for replying :)

 

Yeah I think I might go get it done, I used to hate the look of it, but now it has started hurting so it'd be better off fixed and in a cast/bandage for a few weeks or months.

 

Thanks for the link, i'm going to have a read of it now!

Lou,

 

I don't have experience with foot issues myself but have known several people who had surgery for a variety of issues. The recovery seems to be long and slow but everyone says it was worth it.

Hi Lou

 

I have bunions (hereditary from my mothers family) & although they're not huge mine can be very painful at times & become very inflamed & red. My mothers are very bad but she won't have hers operated on because she says the op is too painful - not sure how she knows that! But she does avoid hospitals so that may be the real reason.

 

Hope that whatever you decide that you get some relief from them. I tend to wear flat shoes with soft leather & as little stitching as possible.
