Re: Anybody use a cane? (2 months post-op calcaneal osteotomy/tendon transfer, PTTD)

As long as your heel is fused you won't do any damage. I was completely fused at six weeks so started PWB working to FWB over the next few weeks. The pain level does increase when you start weight bearing though, then gradually goes back down.
