Intraosseous hemangioma of the heel (calcaneous)

I have a diagnosis of an intraosseous hemangioma of the heel (calcaneous). Looking for anyone who's had a similar issue and what you did about it. My doctor recommends surgery for removal of the lesion and then repacking the bone with a synthetic bone material. I'm not keen on being off my foot for 6 weeks (3 weeks no weight bearing, 3 weeks partial weight bearing).
