: Hi Lisa and everyone else who is thinking about bunion surgery or has had it.
: I went for another opinion regarding my bunion surgerywhich was scheduled for next week,
: and this doctor told me that if I am
: not in much pain......don't do it! He said that my toe is quite mobile and that if I get
: orthodics..............it won't fix the bunion but it will stop the progression and elimnate my
: other foot getting one. So for now I am not going to have surgery. Thanks to ABC news
: and the doctor on the news. He said unless it really is aboslutley necessary, don't
: go through this surgery. .that's why I went for another opinion! I may need surgery
: sometime in the future..................but then again I may not! For now I am waiting.
Louise, I'm so happy for you... I'm glad you don't have to go through it at least now as long as you
don't need to.. Just stay away from tight shoes so they wont irrate your feet any further..
Good luck to you...
