Im 23, and have had bunions all my life.

I am scared about the surgery..its on april 18.

I have learned to keep internet searches to a minimum. it does not help..and if your like me only causes you to go crazy

pre op is on Monday (23/3/15)

don't know if anyone will actually read this, but it helps to be able to share my experience and maybe someone will find it helpful.

thanks x
