I'm a year and a half post-op for a double bunionectomy (severe bunions). I have very slight bumps where the bunions used to be and my big toes still curve in a bit. My scars are almost imperceptible. To me, after years of ugly bunions and toes bent to about a 30 degree angle, my feet look beautiful! I was told before I had the surgery that my feet could have been corrected more easily/better if I hadn't waited twenty years too long, but I am still very pleased with the results. Long term effects were numbness (still have a wee bit; it continues to lessen) and [B]very[/B] slight stiffness. I still stand on my toes and bend them back and forth occasionally to keep them flexible. I have no pain and can walk for miles and miles and miles. (Well, maybe [I]that[/I] many-- but enough that my energy would give out long before my feet.) I don't need moleskin pads, I don't get blisters, I don't have to wear weird shoes. It's great!
