My 9YO daughter is developing bunions. So far, she isn't in pain, but I'd love to know if other parents have dealt with it, when it became problematic, and what it was like for their child. Thanks!

Thanks so much, Amy. I'm very relieved to hear that surgery can wait for a long time. Her doctor wasn't too worried about 'em, but they seem a lot bigger to me than a year ago. So far tho, no pain.

I had them growing but didn't have it removed till I was a senior inn high school. They will not do surgery unless it becomes painful and only after the bones in her feet fuse together. It probably wouldn't hurt to take her to a doctor and look into getting her inserts for her shoes to help prolong the surgery. I've had the surgery on both feet and the one I had done in high school will have to be redone at some point.
