I had my left foot done 10 years ago while I was in college and it was a successful surgery on the bunion. At the time I did not need to have the other foot done as it was very mild...and now im at the point where I NEED my right foot bunion removed. I remember I got the procedure done on my left foot during a summer b/w my junior and senior yr in college and i was back on my feet for my senior year. What to expect is numbness and stiffness but ultimately your foot will look alot better. More importantly, having the procedure WILL make life alot easier in terms of walking in other shoes besides tennis shoes. Trust me, im the same way: its so hard to wear any other shoes, i basically wear tennis shoes or flats bc high heels are too uncomfortbale on the foot with the bunion. When i got my procedure done i also had an orthopedic surgeon. Ive recently heard its better to go to a podatrist vs ortho bc podatrist specialize in feet whereas ortho's are more about back/neck etc...I know it depends upon the actual doctor and their qualifications number of surgeries etc but how did you decide who to go with? Thanks!
