Can I walk after EPF?

Posted by Shell D. on 1/05/04 at 16:15 (141431)

I'm scheduled to have EPF on Friday. My Dr. said I will be able to walk right away with a surgical shoe on? Won't this hinder my healing?

I was in a plaster cast for 2 weeks after EPF, and even after it
came off the foot was still very tender and sore. I would be very wary of
walking aroung too much for the first few weeks, as you say it might
delay your healing.
