Re: Weight bearing after surgery?

The picture I think is a good idea for the site. You mentioned you are going to weight bear on Monday. When I had surgery my Doc made me weight bear right after surgery..before I left the recovery room. I question this now. Do you have any info on why your Doc had you wait to weight bear? I only had PF surgery but I have heard other say they had wait with only having PF surgery.

i suspect i did not go weight bearing because i had tarsal tunnel and surgery on my big toe (the toe really hurt). friday i started walking around the house and out into the yard. some pain around the area where the fascia was released but it is much to early to know if this is going to work. the swelling is down enough so that i can put on my reboks.
