Bunion surgery and running
February 19, 2014 11:34 AM Subscribe
Runners of MeFi, have any of you had bunion surgery? If so, what were your outcomes, running-wise? What was your recovery like? How soon were you able to get back to normal training or even maintenance training? Did you experience the hoped-for reduction in pain? Did you have any issues with your form or balance afterward?

Background: I'm a 35-year-old marathoner with a moderate bunion on my right big toe. I've had cortisone injections, and I run in orthotics. It's gotten more and more painful over the last year. It's time to get serious about this bad boy; thing has its own ZIP code.
Thanks in advance for your help!
