Re: Surgery is scheduled
Good luck with your surgery. Make sure you read the thread "tactics for coping while non-weight bearing". It has many great ideas of how to occupy your time and things to get before surgery to be better prepared. Will you be staying in the hospital a night or two? When you are home, be sure to elevate, really elevate your foot - toes above the heart - it will help with the swelling. Also, make sure you take your pain pills when they are due to stay ahead of the pain.
