calcaneal navicular surgery

My 10 year old daughter had the surgery for a calcaneal navicular coalition on 8/14/07. They went in and took out the coalition, (Which he said was huge) and threaded a muscle through the 2 bones and tacked it to another bone using a button on the outside of her ankle. She was in a hard cast for 4 weeks. The cast was removed last week, along with the button. Her surgeon told us she can start putting weight on it and to start Physical therapy in 2 weeks. So just 1 week later, it is still swollen, she can't put any weight on it without severe pain, and she can't put a shoe on. So we are 5 weeks post op, and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the recovery from this surgery? I'm beginning to feel like she will be on crutches FOREVER. I'm not sure if I should push her to put weight on it or not. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Judi
