Bunnions

Posted by Si Carney on 10/22/03 at 15:08 (135008)

Sir I have had bunnions for over 40 years. I am now 68 years old and I am thinking about having this bunnions surgery. My reason is my feet hurt all the time. I don't want to be off my feet for a long period of time. I am a bowler and I bowl at least 3 times a week. Please help me.

I am not a doctor but I had my bunions operated on when I was 24 yrs old that was 13 yrs ago. I do remember plan on being off your feet for a long time, if I remember right I had to take off work for 6-8 weeks. Bowling right after you have the surgery I doubt if that will be happening. When you are talking surgery its kinda hard to have your cake and eat it both. You might have to make a sacrife and give up bowling for a month. Trust me it will be worth it. For many years I had relief until I got Plantar faciist.
