Unhappy Toe Bone Biopsy

I'm having a bone biopsy next wednesday 10/20/10, on my left 2nd toe. I broke my foot in 3 place's 10 years ago and have been having surgery after surgery. Had a bone scan done and they think they see an infection in the bone, so that is why now they want the biospy to see what kind of infection I have. If it can't be healed, doc did mention taking out the bone but not cutting off the toe. I can live with that. Also, a plastic surgeon will assist on the next surgery to do a Z plasty and remove all of the old scar tissue, while my podiatric fuse's the joint's or what's left of them because my toe is sticking up on over to the next toe. So, I was wondering how much pain will I be in after this is done.Which will be done in a surgical center. I've delt with the pain from all the other surgerie's but now I'm curious about this one. I did have a bone graft taken from my left leg below the knee to put in my foot, but don't remember the pain on that one. Another reason is too, that I have a wedding to go to 2 day's after procedure. Will I be ok to attend for awhile. I know it sound's rediculous and I should stay home, but it's a sit down dinner and I have already rsvp'ed and they have given the count to the place. So, in the long run anyone who has had a bone biopsy done, I would like to know how it went for you.(How long Pain and what to expect, will I be beridden and so on) Thanks
