Just had endo. fasciotomy on one foot today. Not too bad of an experience. Can I started trying to stand or put pressure on it in a couple of days? Or should I stick to crutches for awhile?

Not that I don't think your question is legitimate, but shouldn't your doctor have explained this to you? These message boards shouldn't be a replacement for medical advice but works best as an adjunct to it.

I had heel surgery on May 5, 2005. I was in a walking boot with crutches and now I am able to walk in a gym shoe.
You should be off you foot and have lots of rest.
I have pain on the top of my foot and the ball of my foot. Did you have that kind of pain too? What seems to work for you?
