Re: Concerns about bunion surgery

From my perspective as a surgeon, I will say that patients all experience pain differently. I could fill up pages with all sorts of experiences I have had. I often tell patients that everyone is an expert on someone elses body. I remember when I was pregnant with my first child, strange women would come up to me and begin to tell me (unsolicited, I might add) stories of their pregnancy and labor and deliver. As you can well imagine the stories ranged from it was no big deal to it was horrible. Needless to say, you should discuss your concerns with your surgeon. Get all your questions answered by who is going to do your surgery. As far as pain meds go, I discuss this with patients and together we decide on what is best for them. The most important thing you can do for yourself is be as informed as you can so you do not experience the unexpected.

Good luck.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
