What are some possible problems after surgery for bunions?

ANSWER

Some possible problems after surgery:

  • The bunion comes back.
  • The surgery doesn’t correct the problem enough, or overcorrects it so that your toe now points inward.
  • The pain continues.
  • You can’t move your big toe as well as before.
