When it comes to preparing for your bunion surgery recovery, there are a lot of small things you can do that will make the process much easier. For example, rearranging the furniture in your home to make it easier to maneuver through will make a big difference.
We recommend that you stock your fridge and pantry with simple-to-cook and pre-made meals. Stock your freezer with ice packs to help with post-surgical swelling. Make sure you place items like your phone, remotes, chargers, and any other items you use on a regular basis in places that are easily accessible.
Purchasing extra pillows is recommended to help with elevating your foot and for comfort. Having someone who can drop by to assist you around the house is also very useful.
If you experience any difficulties during your recovery, do not hesitate to contact your surgeon so he can provide you with the assistance you need. If you are considering receiving bunion surgery, contact our office to schedule a consultation with reconstructive foot and ankle specialist Dr. Neal Blitz.
