I have already went to the doctor and had x-rays done and was told that for how young I am (21) that my feet are really bad. They interfere with my everyday life, that even having the comforter ontop of my feet hurt and I have even though I was having gout attacks before because i was in so much pain.
My questions are has anyone had side incisions instead of the incision on top? I have a tattoo that I don't want ruined and know that majority of doctors only know one way to preform this surgery. Also, I have been prescribed pain medications before like tramadol and vicodin and I have also take rocicodone and morphine. I have a high tolerance when it comes to taking pain pills and was wondering if I should mention this to my doctor so that what he prescribes me is enough to help with pain. I do not want to be viewed as a junkie because I am not, I have just been prescribed these pain medications before for different reasons.
I also want to know the amount or dosage of different pain medications everyone has gotten, I noticed they range from tramadol, vicodin, and percocets. Along with aleve and OTC pain killers.
I plan on getting both of my feet done, so I can get back to work and school. Is it much more difficult to get around and heal when you have had both done? And do you really have to have someone there 24/7 to take care of you? My boyfriend is a full time student and my parents live 10 hours away. Would I be able to care for myself while my bf is in class until he gets home?
Sorry for all of the questions, I am just really curius and nervous about getting this procedure done. But at the same time I am so exctied not to be ashamed to wear flip flops anymore or to go get my toes done! And hopefully find shoes that I can actually wear! I have always been picked on about how wide my feet are, when really it is just how wide the bunion is.
