Although the healing process is different for everyone, our patients typically return to normal activity between 1-2 months (again, depending on what your "normal" activity is). Since the foot is used at all weightbearing times, our doctors take a cautious approach to allow ample recovery. Following surgery, you will remain in a walking boot for 3-6 weeks. Around the 2nd or 3rd week post-operatively, stitches are removed and our patients are transitioned first into a surgical shoe and then a gym shoe. Pain level, helaing time and swelling all play into the amount of time you should expect to stay in your walking boot. Our podiatrist may then recommend certain at-home exercises and even physical therapy. Every foot is different!
