... I had bunion surgery on both feet as well as hammer toes fixed a a good twenty years ago and a couple of years ago, I noticed one foot was going back to where it was before the surgery. I also thought I had been born with flat feet and weak ankles because good feet do not run in my family. Had I known then what I know now about flat feet and bunions, I NEVER would have let a...
