Walking after surgery

Posted by Kristie on 5/26/04 at 12:50 (151306)

I had PF release surgery on May 7th. I will have been in a cast for about three weeks and am having it removed next week. For people who have had this surgery did you use your crutches afterwards? How long until you were able to walk normally?

Hi Ktistie: Used crutches after surgery but don't recall how long. It was maybe three weeks. I used them until I felt I could walk without them. Ask the doc, but your foot will let you know.
