Question Triple Arthrodesis

I am very apprehensive about my upcoming surgery on July 8, 2011. i am in my late sixties and I have a low threshold for pain. I have been told by my surgeon, who is supposedly one of the best in the country to perform the triple arthrodesis procedure, that I will be hospitalized for 4 to 5 days, and then I will spend the next 2 to 2 1/2 months in a rehab ctr. due to the fact that i live alone.

Can anyone please tell me exactly what I willl be facing. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
