Hello, I'm getting surgery on my right foot in two weeks time to remove a bunion and bunionette / to straighten out my big toe and fifth toe. I have a couple of questions about recovery:
1) How much time do people normally take off work?
I have a sedentary desk job and have said I'll likely be off for two weeks at the moment but my consultant basically said it's normally six weeks but a minimum of two at least.
Also, should I try and keep my foot elevated at work when I go back?
2) What sort of shoes are best to wear once the support shoe comes off?
I will be in the shoe for six weeks. Not sure what I'll be able to wear after that. I'm worried about getting this wrong and damaging the work the surgeon has done. I currently wear a women's wide 8 or a 9 and struggle to find shoes.
Thanks in advance! ??
