Well, next week is my wonderful double bunion surgery. We're almost completely prepared for it - my husband has taken time off of work to care for me day of and after surgery and then my retired dad will step in and take over from there. We've already got the wheelchair and thankfully, my parents house is set up for wheelchair access due to my grandfather. So showering, bathroom, etc. won't be as difficult as it would be if our house couldn't accomodate a wheelchair.

Here are my questions:

What kind of ice packs did you buy and where did you get them? Was there some kind of special "pouch" you can purchase that will keep your foot dry yet keep the ice pack in one spot?

Were the boots given to you at the hospital or did you have to buy them elsewhere?

While on bed rest, what kinds of exercises did you do so that you didn't lose muscle? How many calories did you take in? Any problems with appetite?

Although I'm VERY anxious over this surgery (never been under the knife before), I am looking forward to it being over with. I've got a great doctor who came highly recommended - he's a sought after podiatric surgeon and I feel confident that he will do a great job. My feet are KILLING me as it is so I'm hoping everything goes well and my problems with my horrible bunions will fade.

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
