Surgery is scheduled

I am having a Triple arthrodesis for the correction of posterior tibia tendinitis flat foot on November 22.

I want to know what I should get to help me out for everyday life. What to expect for the first few weeks.

I will also be on this site quite frequently since I finally have a laptop.

Thanks,
Laura

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.
