I've been reading a lot of discussions on double bunion operation on this board. I'm going in for my op at the end of next month, right after Christmas (getting both feet done) and I feel I might need some info on how to prepare for the op as I've been told by my doctor I won't be able to bare any weight on my feet for at least 4 weeks. He was very hesitant on doing both at the same time but quite frankly, I don't want to go in twice, pay twice, and be off from work twice. Any tips, to help me deal with what's to come? What should I have on hand to help me during the day when my boyfriend is working? He said he'll buy me a scooter (I think that's what it's called) to help me get around the house when I need to use the bathroom or get something from the kitchen. I'm really nervious about getting both feet done but I'm 32yo, both feet are becoming unbearably painful. Also, my boyfriend and I plan on getting married in a yr or so and starting a family within the next two years so if I don't do this now, I'm not sure when I'll be able to do it.
Please guys, any help, advice and/or tips, will be GREATLY appreciated!
