I finally went to a pediatrist today, and he told me that I need to have my hammer toes pinned, and I need bunion surgery. He said that he would highly recommend I have it done within the next year, because it is getting worse, and I've been in a lot of pain. I will need to be off of my feet for 8-9 weeks post-surgery. The obvious solution is that I have the surgery next summer when I'm not working. However, we were going to start trying for baby #2 in May. We would have to put our family plans on hold for the summer. My daughter is currently in daycare. If I had the surgery in June, I would need to be off of my feet until August. It would probably be difficult to care for my daughter when I'm home alone with her all day (she'll be 1 in March). Plus, what a rotten summer! Would it look horrible if I had the surgery during the school year? That way, my daughter could go to daycare, we wouldn't have to put our family planning on hold, and I could enjoy my summer with her. However, I was off for 12 weeks last year for FMLA when I had my daughter. That would be 2 years in a row that I'm off for a big chunk of time. And it's not an emergency surgery, so I worry that it would look bad that I'm not having it done in the summer. What would you do?
