Question Underlapping 5th toe/ Tailors Bunion:Surgery Required??

Hi All~
This is my first post as Im new to this board. Surfed in when looking for info about my underlapping toe.

My question is geared to those of you who have had this surgery or know someone who had it........ what is the recovery time approx.?? Even though its considered minor surgery, it will be my first surgery of any kind and Im pretty nervous. I dont have a date set or anything but my doctor has pretty much confirmed I WILL need surgery since the one on my left foot hurts with or without shoes.

Since I have this problem on both feet should I just go ahead and get the surgery on both? Or should I wait until the one on my right foot starts to bother me?

Your opinions are greatly appreciated.

my daughter just had the surgery done 8 weeks ago. she is doing great. was on perecet for about 3-4 days, then just took some tylenoo. she said it really didin't hurt that much. she will have to have the other foot done later, but only one at a time.
