... I can only speak to my experience. Tomorrow will be 4 weeks post op double bunionectomy for me. I had 1st metatarsal osteotomy with 2 screws each. I can say that at one week I wouldn't base too much on the appearance of your feet. My feet looked like a train wreck and that I still had bunions. To this day my toes still angle towards the seconds toes a little, but I can tell... (4 replies)

... I went yesterday to an ortho surgeon to schedule some bunionectomies. While I was there, he told me that I also have morton's foot and that it's common for people with morton's foot to also have bunions. I didn't ask more about it b/c I've always know that my second toe is longer than my first and I actually kind of prefer the way it looks to a shorter second toe.

... at my foot was pretty even with bunions. I guess its a matter of opinion. My point is, now that I have "come out" with it, I haven't had any bad reactions about bunions being gross. You might as well tell the truth even though it will be difficult at first. ... (6 replies)
... I suppose you are hesitant to be honest because you may be younger than the average bunionectomy patient. Please re-think your idea to tell a story about your surgery.

I told people exactly what caused the bunions, and it... (6 replies)
