Angry Dorsal Bunion?

To remove Dorsal Bunion or not to?

I had two opinions so far. I have gone through numbers of shoes.

I have custom made orthotics for shoes. I have a right foot support.

Second opinion resulted in No simple surgery since the bone is elevated out of position from club foot.

This is not a regular Bunion.

Re: Dorsal Bunion?

I would like information on my Dorsal Bunion. Have it cut off in hope to relieve pain or leave it alone? Get custom made orthotics and heavenly shoes still not found? Are they on Earth?

Does the Dorsal Bunion get worse over time? I am 44 yrs old. It really came alive in last five years. It is residual from Club foot.

Re: Dorsal Bunion?

If you're having that much of an issue with it than you just need to get it removed. I'm 17 and I have to get bunions removed from both of my feet this summer.

Re: Dorsal Bunion?

What kind of doctor are you seeing? Hopefully it is a ortho who is foot and ankle board certified. This type of issue requires a specialist.....and one who sees this type of issue on a regular basis.

Yes both opinions are ortho. Yes I saw a specialist in this area. The second opinion came out not an easy surgery. The bone is elevated out of position from club foot. It is not a regular Bunion people get.

" I still have not found what I am looking for" in shoes?

Is there a heavenly shoe?

I hope so. Thanks. I can always remove down the road If Mr Bunion grows angry.

Waxberg's shoes. "If they don't fit or feel comfortable nobody can"

Yes I saw an orthopedic who is a foot and ankle specialist. And if you go to your local orthopedic clinic you'll find a specialist that can help you.
