Hi everyone. I live in the UK and am contemplating "left foot Scarfe osteotomy of 1st metatarsal with Akin osteotomy of hallux."
I am concerned that long term, the operation may not be successful. My bunion is stopping me walking longer than 15 minutes without pain and limping as the second toe has become very painful but it seems there can be long term problems after an operation, particularly with metal screw irritation and nerve damage?
What I would love to know is whether most people are pleased long term with the results of surgery or is it likely that I am just going to swap one set of problems for another?
I would love to know what people's experiences are long term?
