Calcaneal osteotomy, modified Brostrom procedure, gastrocnemius slide
Procedures: Calcaneal osteotomy, modified Brostrom procedure, gastrocnemius slide
I'm almost 3 weeks post op and was wondering how long it is before swelling begins to settle down. I have two companies wanting to fly me in for interviews but I understand flying may not be an option so I'm considering driving. Drive would be 12 hours. I'm just wondering how long others that have had a calcaneal osteotomy had to wait before they could keep their foot down (below waist level) for more than a 3 hours without complications (swelling and/or pain)? 4 hours? Any feedback is appreciated so I can make plans.
