Longtime reader (and bunion sufferer) who finally made the step to see a podiatrist. He recommended a chevron bunionectomy. I live in New York, and it seems like most doctors in the UK recommend a scarf bunionectomy. I'm wondering if people have had the chevron, and what their results were.
My bunions look quite severe (I'm only 30 but they are already very painful), and I can only wear extra wide or mens shoes. I thought a chevron was only for people with mild bunions, and I am worried that it won't be able to fix the bunion entirely.
I'm wondering, for people who have gotten the chevron surgery: 1) how bad were your bunions? 2) Can you wear normal womens shoes now? Or are your feet still extremely wide? I'm not talking about high heels, just anything other than the clunky and unprofessional sneakers I am stuck with now. 2) Does your big toe veer off away from the others?
I am having surgery for the pain, but I would also love to have normal-looking feet. I would hate to have the wrong procedure and go through the pain of surgery only to have to wear clunky sneakers with orthotics for the rest of my life.
The doctor also said that recovery would be about a month, which seems very short. What have peoples' experiences been?
