Victoria Beckham's Bunions

Submitted by Meg Wilson on February 3, 2010 - 09:38.

The Daily Mail
reports that Victoria Beckham, age 34, has been suffering with painful bunions on her feet for five years. Bunions are a bone deformity that is most often caused by wearing high-heeled shoes.

Bunions usually form at the base of the big toe joint. A bunionectomy is the name of the surgery involved where the toe joint is cut to re-align with the toe bone.

Beckham has been spotted wearing flat shoes recently. She is apparently considering having her feet operated on. She will need to keep her feet up for six weeks after the surgery and may be confined to a wheelchair for some time. She may not be able to wear high heels for up to six months.
