ankle surgery coming up

I fell and broke BOTH of my ankles on 8-14-09. Have a clean break in both of my fibulas. Got both casted on the 17th. The right foot felt alot worse and Doc told me that I need surgery on it because of floating bone spurs and some misalignment. I am wondering about recovery time. I know everyone is different, but if anyone has had this done and could give me some info, I would appreciate it. I am scheduled for surgery this Friday, 8-31-09. and I think it will just be an overnight stay at the hospital. Is total bed rest necessary when I come home without getting up at all? Any input would be greatly appreciated...
