I had my fusion done on June 30th do to being hurt at work.. I was in a splint for 1 week then cast that was removed on August 2nd.. So 5 weeks after surgery I am now in a brace.. Still non weight baring and swells often to the point I feel my toes may pop off.. I've realized recovery doesn't happen overnight but I'm already over it.. I have a very hard time sitting still with 3 kids but am doing my best.. Everyone seems to be in a cast for way longer.. My dr is one of the best in my state and has amazing results with this fusion but I am so reserved now reading all the posts on recovery.. I use a knee walker to get around but he says in a few weeks I can walk.. I take pretty exceptional vitamins and joint supplements but I am scared about how this is going to go.. Anyone else experience a quickened recovery from this?
