Weight shift: When you a have a bunion, depending on its severity, your weight can shift from the area beneath the bunion to the other bones in the ball of the foot.

I have bunions and my toes look like these are pointing outwardly can I get operation to correct this.
Yes: Yes bunion correction and hammertoe correction are very common fixable problems. However if there is any type of chemo therapeutic agents being used presently it would be unlikely due to a decreased immune system.

Different: If the pain is from hard skin, you have a corn or callus. Basically they are the same tissue, with a corn being more focal and a callus, more diffuse. A bunion is the boney enlargement where the big toe and the metatarsal behind it meet. The big toe is usually leaning toward the lesser toes. If the boney lump is on the toe itself, this is an exostosis. See a podiatrist for discussion of treatment. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
No: In 30 years of practice, I have never seen a bunion corrected by orthotics, splinting or other external devices. Certainly, improving the biomechanics of the foot can help prevent bunions by slowing or arresting their development, but once the deformity is present, surgery is the only method of "curing" it. That being said, many small deformities may respond to shoe modification or simple padding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Early treatment consists of steroid injections and custom inserts to improve joint function. As it advances, surgery may be needed to restore joint function, insert a joint implant or even fuse the joint to stop painful motion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
