    Hi you will be fine, I had my left foot done just over two weeks ago, The operation itself was fine and I had very little pain in the days following, I was kept in overnight but that was mostly because my operation did not happen until 3 o'clock in the afternoon and I felt a little nauseous from the anaesthetic. I am able to get around the house reasonably well with my Velcro sandal and as long as I keep my foot elevated for much of the day and rest I have very few problems with swelling. Try to get some sleep and I hope it all goes well for you ,good luck

      Hi, you might be having your foot operated on right now, so when you read this hope all went well for you.  Now your home just relax with all your books, films, or whatever you have interest in because from now on your on a sitting holiday at home.  You won't be able to walk on your foot for about a week, and then slowly put weight on it.  Hooe you have someone at home to help, or they give you crutches to walk to loo and bed.  It does slowly get better.

      Hi, I was able to walk on my foot in the Velcro sandal with support of crutches straight away and in fact I was encouraged to do so before I was discharged, but for the first few days just  as absolutely necessary for visits to the bathroom etc , you need to rest your foot and keep it elevated for most of the time.

      I didn't get crutches either, but luckily I had a walking frame and that kept my balance when I hoped in first week.   How they expect us to manage I really don't know!  I ended up buying a wheelchair it was so difficult to walk in first three or four weeks!  I guess it does depend on your fitness and possibly age.  Let us know how yiu get on.

      the reason I was a little upset was that the pharmacist herself kept saying well our system is down we cannot communicate with your insurance company through the computer I had to tell her can't you call the insurance company what did we do before computers

      Yes, some people just can't work things out, you'd think they'd be a bit more savvy working in a pharmacist!  Anyway how's the pain going now, do you have co codomol they make you relaxed too?
