Bunion surgery sparks anorexia relapse in reality TV star
Nikki Grahame recently spoke with the media about her eating disorder.
Bunions are known to have a negative impact on a person's self-esteem, leading many to go to the lengths of bunion surgery. For UK reality star Nikki Grahame her weight, bunions and body image have put her in a vicious cycle.
Grahame reportedly couldn't exercise following her bunion surgery, leading her to dramatically cut her calorie intake, according to the Daily Mail.
"Then, as soon as I could, I started exercising to a ridiculous degree - but without increasing the food," she told Heat magazine. "I'm tormented. All I think about is this regimented schedule."
Grahame's case is not a typical one, though bunion surgery can keep a patient off their feet for a number of days or even weeks.People who want to correct their bunions without going under the knife should consider using bunion splints or orthotics. These are known to help reduce the severity of bony deformities without the risks involved in invasive operations like bunion surgery.
