please read and reply, impending surgery

Posted by april s. on 8/07/03 at 06:38 (126457)

Hi, I hope someone can help or just has any experience with this. I am having both toes, the first of the small four, shortened and straightened with a pin in less than a week. I want to know how painful the surgery is, and will I beable to get up and take care of my 9 yr old daughter soon after? How long does the swelling last, and how long will they have me on pain meds? I hate being sleepy all the time from them.
What is the post op care?

thanks alot! April
