Re: Minor Foot Surgery - Pain & Questions
Tricky. Traditionally health professionals will want you to weight bear asap in most cases based on my own experiences. This is ususally good for you and aides recovery as it stops you seizing up and needing so much recovery time, physio etc.
But I'd say if you're concerned and in pain - and let's face it, no one can judge how much pain you're in but yourself but you - call your Doctors office and explain the problem.
I have severe ankle tendon problems and when I first noticed the pain some years ago I had an x-ray at the hospital. As there was no sign of a break I was sent on my way with no walking aid or pain relief. Big mistake.
Point being - if in doubt, speak up. Better to say something and be overcautious than suffer in silence.
No one will give you a hard time for saying you're unsure. However, your Doctor is likely to ask you why you didn't say anything sooner if you still feel this sore in a few weeks time.
Good luck. Hope you're on the mend soon.
