I am having a hemicap hemiarthroplasty (half joint replacement) on my big toe on the NHS next week. Has anyone had one?

I am obviously am trying to organise people to walk my kids to and from school and various clubs but I am nervous about it all...

How bad will the pain be? How much will I be able to walk? Is walking the kids to school uphill possible in the first two weeks?? What about after that?

I googled getting one of those electric wheelchairs to hire but not sure it will be worth the hassle and maybe over-dramatic?
