Had surgery on my right big toe four days ago. Took 600 mg ibuprophen for pain on day after surgery. The third day just Tylenol. Surgery only took 30 minutes! You could easily do both toes at the same time. I have no pain. I have to use Darco shoe for two weeks. This shoe basically has you walking on your heels. Can't drive with this shoe. On third week I get a surgical Sandel and can start driving. I didn't need crutches or knee scooter. The nerve block does allow you to feel your foot to walk in the house after surgery. I walked to the bathroom in the hospital and the numb feeling was fine. Block lasted until midnight on surgery day. The worst part is the darco shoe. It is like walking on a two inch high platform shoe. I don't really have a huge platform shoe for non surgery foot to even out my gait. So I hobble around.
