I am scheduled to have a pre-op meeting with my surgeon tomorrow, with the expectation that I will have a double bunionectomy within 4 weeks.
I am 22, female, and have had bunions of increasing severeity since I was a child of around 9 or 10. They cause me pain after exercise (fitness classes and running) and after walking for 1 mile +, which happens quite frequently. It's not terrible pain though, which is why I am wondering whether now is the right time for surgery, as it feels like more of a preventative measure rather than an absolute necessary right now.
I am currently preparing for university exams I will be taking in August which are crucial for beginning a Masters in Science course in September. Therefore, it's really important that the surgery does not cause so much pain that studying is a real challenge. After all, focusing for long periods of time on great seas of text is difficult at the best of times!
