    yah. I'm no doc, but my dad was a surgeon (retired). he used to remove them form patients. its not really a big deal, he'd just do it during a regular office visit.

    If you're a MAN you use no anesthetic. But if you're sane you'll have them give you a shot of zylocane, maybe .5 second (literally that short) and then you wont feel that entire half of your foot for hours. It's not a big deal at all, you're making a mountain out of a mole hill.

    Just buy a package of Dr. Scholl's bunion pads and see if they help first before running off to the surgeon.

    Verm, lol. I don't think we want to see pics of bunions. Maybe you do?;)

    I also have this problem. (had). I went to the foot doc one time, and she gave me 3 very painful shots of something. I forget what it's called but, It brought relief to my feet immediately!

    Honestly, no lie, here I am, a year and a half later, STILL have NO pain whatsoever.
    Seriously, I couldn't even run anymore, or do anything, because I was sooo concerned about my bunions hurting, now, everything's cool.

    I want to get surgery, still, though someday, just so my feet are cuter. I hate my feet! Like someone else said, it is a fairly common procedure.
