Meet Paul-Paul Bunion. Paul is an unhappy lad because not only is he attached to one very unattractive foot, but his bones are all crooked as well. Poor Paul has a bunion. In fact, Paul Bunion is descended from a long line of bunions which neither he nor I was aware of until recently when my Dad and I compared bunions (he won by the way 0_0 )
Yes, dear Paul Bunion has many reasons to be unhappy. Not only is he all crooked, but he hurts like hell! And because he is so crooked he messes my toenail up making it ingrow all the time and forcing me to keep it trimmed really low and crooked. If you look closely at the picture below you can also see the scar running down my foot where Paul was given a bunionectomy years ago that failed. Paul is pretty pissed off and unhappy that he had to go through all that pain only to have to do it again years later.
Below is what Paul Bunion should look like-all nice and straight with no big bump on the side of him.
So in January I am going to get him another bunionectomy. And this time they are putting 2 screws in Paul ( which they may or may not leave in depending upon if they cause me problems such as getting infected ) to keep him nice and straight. I will be on crutches for a while ( just in time to ruin my birthday), and then I will have to wear a wooden block orthopedic shoe for a while. Neither Paul or myself is looking forward to it having been there done that already once before. But hopefully this time will fix it and we can get Paul's frown turned upside down. Despite having the world's ugliest feet I thought I would document the process for anyone interested.
This is my foot. This is my foot high on heels. Any questions?
