hallux rigidus

Any tips on recuperation from a cheilectomy? I have hallux rigidus on both feet, but I am electing to do the worst foot first. Many thanks for any information or tips- pain relief etc.
Is tylenol with codeine sufficient for the post op period?

    I just had Hallux Rigidus surgery on my right foot with fascial arthroplasty. Like you, I didn’t know what to expect (and had much trepidation). The Vidodin prescribed was adequate for post op and needed for only 2 days, then went on to Motrin and/or Tylenol. Am 2.5 weeks post op and still need one or the other daily at some time. Good luck. I’m hopeful now and it wasn’t as bad as expected. a.
