    I Had Bunion Surgery One Week Ago...

    What inspired me to write this was all the horror stories that I have read about bunion surgery. I am sitting here with my foot elevated and ice on it one week later. I had the right foot corrected 10 years ago, at age 43, and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. It...
