Fusion of Big Toe - Recovery time

What is the expected recovery time after big toe fusion for hammertoe? How long will I be on crutches? How long will I have to wear a special boot?

Re: Fusion of Big Toe - Recovery time

It depends on the specific procedure and your surgeon's preferences. He's the one to ask. It varies from one to another.
