Yes, I said double...as in both feet at the same time.
I found myself scared to death after all the online stuff I read.
So allow me to say "It's no big deal!" Yes, you need help the first week, and two nights of pain. But with the use of a walker you can do anything you normally do, just slower. the pain isn't excruciating.
They numb your feet at first. Even though we had an hr drive home it wasn't uncomfortable.
So don't let the pain scare you. It's no big deal, even for a wuss like me. Just do them both at once and get it over with. Best thing I ever did. Wish I hadn't waited til I was 60.
