I hope your surgery goes well! I can't answer all your questions, but I can recommend looking up a thread on here that has answers to a lot of them by several different people. Tactics for coping while non-weight-bearing after foot surgery
that is the name of the post, put it in the search box. I have a niece who has that same disease your have the Charcot Tooth Marie, she is a lot older than you and sad to say wheelchair bound at this point. I am having bunion and hammertoe surgery on May 1st. So if you want to vent with me I'm a good listener
I don't see how you are going to be on your feet and able to be a camp counselor and hike and stuff in 8 weeks. You better talk to your surgeon about that. Everyone is different and their Dr's recommend whatever is best according to the proceedures done. I'm going to still be in a non walking cast in 8 weeks. And have to have my foot elevated 90% of the time. Do read the posts in that thread, there are so many helpful suggestions. Also, do take that list of quiestions with you and ask your Dr he or she should be giving you most of that info, especially on when to expect to go back to work and things you'll need. I definitely recommend getting a knee scooter instead of crutches, although you can't completely eliminate them. Also you will need help the first few weeks for sure!
