Re: Glass cut out of foot
Did your physician tell you the recovery timeline? Was this done in the office, ER, or operating room?
Typically, an incision heals in 2-3 weeks, but there is always a risk or reopening the area with high impact activity such as running. Without knowing what the area looks like exactly or knowing the extent of the procedure to remove the glass, I would give it a minimum of one week. Let pain be your guide. If it feels better when walking, then try some light jogging. If it hurts when jogging, then your body is telling you the area is not ready for that yet. A cut or incision can take much, much longer to heal when there is constant shearing forces, which are common during walking and running. If the area isn't healing, you are probably doing too much.
