Re: I Am A NEWBIE HERE... Looking For Some Help
I'm sure you should be able to wear a sandal for a couple of days. Surely they will accomodate that. If not, you could use FMLA to take off till you can cen in a closed shoe.
As for the bunion surgery, I recommend you talk with an ortho who is foot and ankle board certified. While I like and trust my podiatrist (removed ingrowns 3 times for me), I would not let me operate on me (I've had 2 cheilectomies which are similar to some bunion procedures). And I certainly would not move forward with this unless I knew exactly what all will be done, what it's called, seen a diagram, seen my xrays, etc.
I urge you to do more research.
