How will bunions / hallux valgus affect me?

Hallux valgus affecting the big toe joint causes pain, footwear discomfort, deformity, and if left untreated it is generally progressive which can potentially lead to joint destruction, reconstruction is best undertaken prior to the joint becoming damaged and pain severe.

Is bunion surgery the best option for me?
