hey all this forum has been so helpful and encouraging to read.most forums gave me second thoughts and fears but this one just encourages me and gives me determination! so I am scheduled for a lapidus next Thursday and I'm going in wide eyed and nervous for recovery! I have a couple questions though.
1)how high does the foot need to be elevated and ballpark figure for how long to elevate it for?
2)I've found crutches to be surprisingly difficult! any suggestions on their use? and I am considering a knee scooter for back up as well but have heard it's easy to injure yourself on them.thoughts?
3) what is the stitch removal process like? what's done and what's the pain level?
4) has anybody had to go back to have some hardware that was out in removed?
