If your bunion is causing you so much pain that it’s interfering with daily life and activities you enjoy, it might be time to consider bunion surgery. When making such a decision, it’s important to know what to expect. Total Podiatry will review the procedures with you and help you decide what is best for your particular situation. You should know beforehand that recovery can take a long time, depending on the severity of your bunion, the procedure you undergo, and how closely you follow aftercare instructions. Once you recover, though, there are multiple ways your quality of life improves after bunion surgery, some of which you may not have even thought of before!
1.Walking without pain. Sure it might seem like a small thing to those who’ve never had the pleasure of having a bunion, but when walking is no longer painful, bunion sufferers everywhere rejoice.
2.Wearing shoes without pain. Finally, you can leave the hobbit life behind and put shoes on without worrying about being uncomfortable to the point of sporting a curious limp.
3.Enjoying activities without pain. Notice a pattern, here? Doing pretty much anything pain-free is a pretty big bonus, wouldn’t you say? Get back to the hobbies and sports you love without having to cut your fun short because your bunion is barking.
4.Feeling confident again. Sure we never perform bunion surgery for cosmetic reasons, but who can deny the added benefit of no longer feeling self-conscious in open-toed shoes. It’s time you revealed your toes to the world with pride!
Of course, while these reasons are all in fun, truth be told, bunion surgery can indeed improve your quality of life. If all other treatments have failed, and you’re ready to consider a surgical procedure, call Total Podiatry at 239-949-2121. We’ll discuss your options and help you decide whether or not bunion surgery is right for you.
