Foot Surgery Recovery

Posted by jclang on 11/06/03 at 18:52 (136593)

Ok....I had surgery for plantar fibramatosis 5 weeks ago, got stitches out a week ago. Can put a little bit of weight on my foot but still on crutches. Incision is healing well but slowly. Should i be worried that i still cannot walk and still on crutches? What is the usual recovery time for this type of surgery?

You should be asking these questions to the surgeon that performed the procedure!
