Re: midfoot arthrodesis
I have had two lapidus bunionectomies, both which invoved two screws and breaking a bone and fusing it in the midfoot, non-weight bearing for 6 weeks.
Do yourself a favor and don't go back to work for at least a month because your foot will be swollen and every time you put the foot down, it will throb.
Even after a month, you may not feel like you want to go back to work. Any work done on the midfoot will take a looong time to recover from. I'm currently 7 weeks post op on my left foot and I can barely keep up with the housework, I walk some, rest some, which I would not have been able to do at work. Work can wait, heal yourself first.
