Bunions

Hallux valgus

Last reviewed: March 8, 2014.

A bunion forms when your big toe points toward the second toe. This causes a bump to appear on the inside edge of your toe.

Hallux Vallus-before-after-OP

My insight: in 2014 I had four times an infection which is very painful; 8-9/10 on the pain scale. I visited the doctor in October 2014 and the above X-rays are showing that a surgery is a need, the date of the surgery was fixed for January 9, 2015.

 I opted for a spinal anesthesia .  [Start Text from Wikipedia] The desired result is total numbness of the area. A pressure sensation is permissible and often occurs due to incomplete blockade of the thicker A-beta mechanoreceptors. This allows surgical procedures to be performed with no painful sensation to the person undergoing the procedure.  [End Text from Wikipedia] The person is awake while the surgery is done, but the patient doesn’t see what is done.

The surgery takes about +/- 1 hour and then the patient goes to a special room where he is observed by professional medical staff till the effect of the anesthesia is gone. The patient, then, will get transferred to its room in the hospital.
