Calcaneal OSTEOTOMY

Posted by Linda on 8/24/04 at 12:21 (158621)

I had Posterior Tibialis repair,Achilles Tendon Lengthening,and Calcaneal osteotomy in June,and have been bearing weight for a week and a half. I have been having pain on the side where the bone was taken out,and my heel is burning. My achilles is really sore,too.
I was wondering what the recovery time is for this type of injury/surgery?
I know it differs between all patients,but I want to figure when i can go back to work

Hi

This is a procedure that will take months for pain resolution. Sometimes up to one year. You may need physical therapy in addition. What time frame did your doctor explain to you?
