What was the specific type of surgery he wants to do? That makes a difference in the type of recovery. Most of the doctors I saw only wanted to do 1 at a time, and then would have me casted for 2 months. Does he want to put you in a cast, or just a bandage and surgical shoe? The doctor I wound up choosing did both at once because the type of procedure had a faster heal time, since the fixation was more stable than traditional cuts.
The only thing that worries me is that your doctor refuses to do both at once. Mine highly recommended it but at the end of the day, it's your feet and if you want only 1 at a time, it should be your choice. I also had a ton of help the first week after, and I don't have any children- that will definitely make it more difficult, if you need help going to the bathroom and he's dealing with kids. Not impossible, but something to take into consideration.
I am only 2 1/2 weeks since the surgery, and I was walking 1 week after, but only 5-10 minutes at a time, for an hour a day. I'm up to 2 hours a day and I'm feeling much better, but a full recovery takes a while and I don't have a "good leg to stand on" (pardon the pun).
If you have any more questions about it, you can message me too if you like.
