I had plantar plate repair and weil second metatarsal osteotomy surgery almost 6 weeks ago. I was in a calf height cam boot for 5 weeks, non weight bearing entire time and using crutches and scooter to ambulate. When I went to my 5 week appointment my surgeon switched me from the calf high boot to an ankle ortho shoe and told me to start walking without crutches.
I now have sharp heel pain that radiates into the big toe when I try to put weight on my foot. The pain is preventing me from walking. I never had heel pain prior to surgery. My doctor put me on prednisone but that hasn’t seemed to help. Has anyone else ever experienced this and could it be from being in the boot for five weeks? Help! I need to be able to walk so I can return to work.
