... This is probably a very naive question, I don't know much about bunions, but can they go away or fix themselves on their own? I started getting pain in my big toe joint about four months ago. I went to the doctor and he x-rayed it and said everything looked fine, that maybe it's a form of arthritis (I'm 33). That was back in April. But in the past couple of weeks I noticed... (1 replies)

... Now that I've read some more posts and searched this forum for "recurrence" I see there are some very disapointed people that have had surgery and had the bunions return. I don't know what I'd do. I seem so unconvinced now about getting surgery. I just want to be able to ballroom dance again without wearing sneakers. ... (10 replies)

... Yep - I had C-sections with both of my kids :rolleyes: and have had 3 foot surgeries now - 2 bunion surgeries in college (20+ years ago), and now, more recently, a mid-foot fusion (Lapidus procedure, 2 screws) - to correct splayed 1st metatarsal, along with Wiel osteotomy on 2nd metatarsal (another screw), and bunion shaved, as well as additional (4th) screw placed at base of...

... For about the last month I've been wondering if I've developed a heel spur? It feels like there's a small marble in my heel when I step down... when I'm barefoot. It isn't "painful" but it is uncomfortable. I already have a bunion (that's needs surgery) on the same foot (left) as well. Do the two generally go hand in hand? My husband talked to a women who just had... (0 replies)
