  • Bunion Surgery

    I had bunion surgery on August 17th. My surgery was pretty extensive. I was just curious to know if anyone else who has had bunion surgery, had a pin going through their big toe. And if so, when it was removed did you experience a lot of pain?

  • Big toe fusion issue

    I've had several operations on my big toe. It all started with a bunion. I now ended up with a fusion. My issue is that my toe is permanently bent at the second joint. Not allowing me to wear any shoes but sneakers and flip flops. Is this normal?
