Ok so i started with the op.51 and i'm doing well, but i have a question about how i should go about playing certain parts. when the theme is played in double notes, there are several times where the same F-key is indicated for both hands. Now i've come across this same scenerio before and usualy I choose one hand to play the note, however in this impromptu I find it important to maintain the flow in both hands.
So my question is what would be best here? Keep the left hand figures intact and omit the use of the right hand or the other way around. Or hell, should I hit the same note with both thumbs?

It really would help if you would give measure numbers. I've glanced through the piece looking for where "the theme is played in double notes ... where the same F is indicated for both hands..." and don't immediately see the spot you are refering to.
