Hi I have been to see the specialist and am due to have a bunion op and hammer toe op on both feet. They have given me the choice of having one foot done at a time or both done together. I have a very low pain threshold and feel that in my case I may be best to have both done together so that there is only one period of Recovery. I would really like to hear from people that have had both feet done, their experiences and whether you feel that it has all been worth it. I particularly would like to know how long it has taken to feel back to normal and to be able to work and drive. Whether there is continuing problems months after the operation and given the choice whether they would still have the operation knowing what they know now as I am also considering not having it done at all. I am 55 and my bunions are not painful at the moment my big toe is now moving over the next toe so in the future I probably will have problems and pain. I would really appreciate and love to read other people's experiences who have had both feet done at the same time. I have read that you need to keep your legs 12 inches above your heart so any links for equipment to help keep the foot elevated this high would be appreciated too. So apprehensive and worried. Thanks in advance 😘
