Foot Surgery Aug 20

I had a chielectomy (SP) and three toes fused with pins. I was told partial weight bearing from my DR, but when I went for other opionions the Drs said no weight bearing at all. How can they be so different?? I had a dressing change last wed, and I go get stiches out this wed. The pins have to be in 6 weeks. I am scared I am walking too much, and the toes might heal crooked.I have wheelchair, walker, crutches, I am on lots of pain meds, which is prob the reason I walk on it. Anybody have any opinions??

Thanks, Lee
