Bunion op

7 years ago I had bunion removal and foot realignment. Had metal pin placed up front of foot and had plaster cast up to the knee for 3 months (not a shoe) crutches.

After the op when the anaesthetic wore off I was in terrible pain for 3 days and as I am allergic to pain killers and anti inflammatory tablets which I was also to take and couldn't, I had no relief whatsoever.

After that it was hard work with the cast on, but once it came off I never regretted having the op done and I had a nice looking foot.

Unfortunately now where the bunion has been removed it is now growing back and I have a small bump. I was told at the time that sometimes they do this. Hey ho, I guess it will take a while before it looked like it did.
