Re: pttd pre op tomorrow

What procedures are you having done? Recovery time really depends on the procedures. I was diagnosed with pttd/flatfoot in 1/2010. I had flatfoot reconstuction surgery in 8/2010 (repair of ptt, fdl tendon transfer, calcaneal osteotomy, kidney procedure and achielles tendon lengthening). I was NWB for 2 months and did not return to work for 4 months. I work in the medical field and my job requires me to be on my feet all day. In the beginning it is important to keep your foot elevated. Will you be able to keep your foot up? Two weeks seems to soon to be back to work. There have been some who have returned to work after several weeks but I believe their jobs were sedentary.
