    Well, keep your socks on if it makes you feel better. One of the attendants will take them off during surgery if they need to (sometimes they need to check your toes to make sure your circulation is ok). Or when the doctor comes in before surgery to check on you, ask if you can keep your socks on. And a dry skin condition probably won't make a difference to the medical team since they've seen a whole lot worse (I would suspect that a hemorrhoid is pretty damn ugly). Man, they are going to be mucking about with your anus so I don't think dry skin on your feet is going to be a big deal.

    you should be able to

    ive had a few surgerys in my life, and the most

    recent one i had broken my wrist

    anyhow, the only thing i was allowed to wear

    was the medical no-grip slip socks

    wear any undergarments in case the medicine had

    happen to just let my bladder go, so socks shouldnt

    I really don't think you should be embarrassed about your FEET during surgery when you're completely naked, but whatever.

    they make you wear big fuzzy grippy socks during any surgery.

    You can. Its perfectly normal for people to have a part of their body they don't like. I hate my feet too...they are so dry!!!!

  • whatever the doctor says to do.
