After bunion surgery
I have been diagnosed with a bunion in the ‘severe’ range.
I am finally considering having surgery (Aiken and McBride.) However, I am a rock climber and climbing (at the level that I do) requires wearing fairly tight shoes.
I have read that “you cannot go back to wearing tight shoes after surgery.” I will never stop climbing.
Thus, should I not have the surgery?
I am fairly sure that climbing shoes did not cause my bunion.
(Both of my parents and my siblings have severe bunions.
My bunion has been forming since I was quite young.
I have not noticed a significant worsening since I started climbing.)
