bunions
over 3 mths ago I had bunions from both feet removed. The bunions have healed well. The only problem is the soles of my feet hurt a great deal. By the evening I cannot walk on them they are so sore. They also swell badly at night as well. I feel like I need padded soled shoes so I can walk on air.......Even my running shoes aren''t soft enough. Any ideas as to what can be wrong or suggerstions what I can do? Thanks.

Dear Penny
This may be something totally unrelated to the bunions and be something called plantar fasciitis or metatarsalgia- let your doctor have a look and maybe refer you if he thinks it is necessary.
