Hi - I am looking for any advice re bunnions.
I have had the aching pain for nearly 2 years now. I have tried shoe insoles from a chiropodist & a course of anti-inflammitaries, my doctor has also given a cortisone injection but the pain keeps coming back.
Yesterday I visited a specialist in London who said there was a deformity there but he was surprised how much pain my bunion was giving me as it is mild. He could perform a bunion op - shave the bone lump, re-align big toe etc, but we have tried another cortisone injection first. If I opt for surgery, I will not be in plaster just a bandage & special shoe.
Today my foot is still aching as much as before although I can move my big toe a little better.
HELP - would appreciate any advice that you can give. Am I just delaying surgery by having cortisone injections ??????
