New to this, so I am 23 and as long as I can remember I had severe bunions and hammer toes which have caused me pain. My big toes on both feet are at an angle where they touch my third toe and the second toe (hammer) looks as if it is floating in air . When I was younger I was advised that I would need surgery over 10 years now and at that time it was suggested that as I was still growing the success of the surgery may be in doubt. So I had regular visits to get orthoics for many years.
So earlier this year went to the gp got referred to University College London hospital (UCLH). I got an appointment initial in April however they have decided to cancel that and give one in May now and even after I have phoned to express the need to be seen earlier due to the pain I am having day to day nothing can be done.
I wanted to ask if anyone had there treatment at UCLH and if it would be a good idea to have both feet done at once.
Also how long did the whole process take from the time of the first consultation to the procedure.
I would greatly appreciate any advice.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
