I have osteoarthritis (hallux rigitis) on one foot and bunion on the other. I need to go for surgery for both.

I'm wondering if I should do it one at a time, or both at the same time

If I do it both at the same time I only need to go for GA once and stay in hospital once. I also reduce the number of days I'm off work and the cost of surgery will be slightly cheaper.

The only drawback is of course I will have 2 painful feet for the first couple of weeks.

I'd like to know if anyone of you has gone for bunion surgery on both feet. (hallux rigitis surgery is about the same as bunion surgery) and how did you manage right after surgery

I had bunion and hammer toe surgery on both feet Jan. 2, 2009. NEVER, would I do it again! I have a wonderful husband for a caregiver, but today is 5 weeks and I can barely walk. Granted, when they finishing healing I will be done, but if I had it to do over I would do one at a time.
