Re: What is the recovery time for foot neuroma surgery?
Assuming the incision is on the top of the foot, you will walk out of the surgery center with a boot of some kind on that foot. Stitches out at 2 weeks. After that, full recovery - that is, no twitches, no tingles, no swelling of any kind, able to do anything you have the aptitude to do with nary a thought of the foot - should be about 12 months. That being said, you should be able to wear whatever shoes you want, dance, jog, etc at about a month. My doctor explained to me that the recovery was not linear...that there would be times when I felt some twinges, etc but that would be normal. He was right. I was back dancing at 3 weeks and wore all my shoes at about a month but still had off and on twinges as the end of the nerve healed. It was a very successful surgery for me.
