i heard of a case like this; and yeah, the surgeon did the surgery at two separate times because the patient would not have had a "good" leg to stand on if not; and that would have made rehab very, very difficult.

Wow. I'm not sure they would do both at the same time. You would not have a leg to stand on. But maybe they would. I know of knee replacements in both that are done at the same time. Maybe someone else on the forum would know. Good luck in whatever you do.
