I had surgery on my right foot on 21st June. I had a half cast for 2 weeks, then had that off and had a lightweight fibreglass cast for a further 4 weeks. Last Thursday I had that removed, joint x-rayed and consultant put me in a boot and crutches and said to walk as much as I was comfortable with. In 6 weeks he said I should be in normal shoes after my appt with him. I know its only 4 days in a boot and I am walking reasonably sensibly, stepping through with my good foot on crutches, but I have to walk and then elevate or it swells. Its also very very achy (not painful) and I'm scared that I wont lose this before I go back in 6 weeks time. I have been told I only need to wear boot when up on it, so no wearing at night. Has anyone else had this bad aching. I certainly wouldnt want to try walking without the crutches although I can stand up and sit down without them.
