@burcidi-- You know, she can get bunion foot surgery. It's a really easy surgery. They trim down the bone so that it doesn't stick out. It does take some months for it to completely heal and she won't be very mobile during that time. But once it's healed, life will be a lot easier.
My wife had bunion surgery last year. I think she used clutches for about three months and then slowly started walking on her own. But she was so happy about the surgery once she was back on her feet. She can actually walk without pain now.
