Hello. My mother (who's 75) is scheduled to be operated on her bunion and hammertoe in two weeks. I just discovered this site and the forums have been quite helpful and I have a few questions:
- the surgeon said the recovery would be around three months : would like to hear from patients who'd done the procedure at 70 yo or above on the length of their recovery time?
- my mother loves wearing pants: I supposed since her feet will be all bandaged up there should not be a problem changing as long as her foot is elevated (I'll be assisting her).
- I've read that for the first week at least her foot should be elevated at ALL times (except of course going to the bathroom). Guess I'm just venting cause normally she's obstinate and OCD. Just hoping she'll follow the instructions to a T.
Your inputs are much appreciated. Thank you.
