I have this painful bony protrusion behind the little toe, called tailor s bunion
I heard somewhere that the solution is operation but I don’t know whether is this operation of tailor s bunion successful?
Anyone with experience?
My mom had this operation. Before operation of tailor s bunion she had really painful experience with wearing shoes, but after operation, she is cool.
She was also interesting herself whether operating tailor s bunion is successful and doctors told us that more than 95 percent of tailor s bunion operations are successful in correcting the deformity.
So, hurry up and get a tailor s bunion operation
It is killing the experience. It was something that I was not able to stand no more. Just like many of other people, I was waiting to get to the surgery because I was scared that something can go wrong. But basically, it is just like some other easy surgeries - it is going to help you relieve the constant pain that you are feeling all the time. There are so many bunionette pain relief that can help you deal with the pain after the surgery. When it comes to success rate, this surgery is really successful so there is no reason to be worried. When I did it and when all this recovery process went by, I was wondering why I haven't done this before.
I thank you for sharing this story with everyone. I too saw a doctor for my feet for the first time when I was 14. Who thankfully at the time told me I was too young and should not have the surgery and it should be an absolute last resort. I have always had more problems with the bunions themselves, particularly on right foot. I got back into dancing in high school and after my freshman year of college I was dancing all the time plus walking all over campus and driving more back and forth to home city, I found myself driving more with my left foot as I still switch back and forth all the time now.
Anyway, my mom found this other doctor we went to see him he was all about doing the surgery so I did and lost like the whole following year of my life. I wore the same tennis shoes and limped for a year. My foot finally got CLOSE to being how it was before the surgery, bunion had come back within first year. When you have problems as young as us, their due more to structure problems and how we walk. Its very important to wear proper shoes and orthotics as I'm sure our doctors did not address.
I have 2 screws in my right foot and almost had the bunionectomy completely redone but he was gonna break it in like 3 places and after my first experience I just chickened out the morning of. Thankfully b/c I'm from new orleans and it was the same month of katrina. Anyway, now one screw is going through my bone and I'm just having the screws taken out in a few days. They've been in for over 5 years so I'm worried if it'll be harder to take out since most are taken out within 2 yrs.
I've thought about redoing the right bunion or doing the left. Right one completely back like before but the muscles are now weaker in the area.
I'm 25 used to dance, teach aerobics, and be a trainer, on top of my fitness lifestyle and it hurts just to stand around in tennis shoes.
I've worked in physical therapy and have seen all I need to see. People please think 2 and 3 times before jumping and doing a surgery, a surgeon is almost always going to be ready to do it, thats what they do! It's not easy when you have screws and whatnot in feet, ankles, wherever that you're on every single day.
More than likely just searching for and finding the proper shoes to fit your feet in conjunction with specially made orthotics will reduce and limit your problem from progressing which is really all you can do. Most people who say they have great results may end up having problems later or arent really active. You cant just buy any cheap unsupportive shoes and make your foot make the shoe fit.
All this is just gonna result in a lot of problems later on and most people regret it. Take care of this now in the proper way and save surgery to when you don't want to live an active lifestyle anymore.
