Battling Bunions: What REALLY Happens During Surgery
Bunions are bumps that form on the joint on your big toe. This happens when your big toe pushes against your second toe, which causes your big toe to grow and stick out.

So, you have a bunion and you want it removed.

Not so fast.

Your symptoms might be "mild," and doctors recommend waiting to have a bunion removed until the pain is unbearable.

What really happens during and after a bunion surgery?

Listen in as Lois Fink shares her personal story on her bunion surgery and why it was nothing like what she was expecting.
