When I was doing partial water changes in my 2 gal. bowl , I would just use a turkey baster to suck up the poop and clean the gravel and then suck out enough water that I wanted to change. Then I slowly added the same amount of conditioned water to the bowl. Fishie never left the bowl.
You especially want the water to be the best it can be while recovering so they can put their energy into the process of healing instead of dealing with the water.
Depending on your schedule and energy level, maybe you could do small water changes daily, like 10% (or 20% every two days), in addition to your regular water maintenance process -- as was advised to me on this forum when I was dealing with fin damage.
I'm sure others will come along and post as well.
Keep us posted on how they're doing.
