| | It's finally time for the surgery
Well, Tuesday is the big day. I've received so much conflicting information from these surgeons. I actually went to 3 before I settled on 1. The first said I would be in the hospital for 2-3 days, the second said for 1 day, the current surgeon is saying same day surgery. I'm a bit nervous, and I still want to find an excuse not to do it! I know the recovery is going to be long...but I don't know how long. I'm a single mom and I don't have a lot of support. I have to enlist the help of friends and neighbors to take my child to school. Does anyone know how long it will be before I can drive? I'm having the left foot done, so can't I still drive after a few weeks? Also, I am flying to another city to have the surgery. I will stay there for a few days and then return home on an airplaine. I've heard that you have to keep your foot elevated, but the airline doesn't think they can guarantee that happening. It's a 2 hr flight. Any suggestions?
