Smile Bunion and Morton Neuroma Post-Op and Word Of Caution

I am 8 weeks post -op and about two weeks ago I didn't realize that I was favoring the outside of my foot when walking to avoid any pain. Big mistake. I noticed one day a little "pop" in my ankle just below the ankle bone and by the evening my ankle was so swollen I could barely walk on it. I finally went back to the Dr. on my last post-op visit and he said I sprained the ankle and pulled a ligament in the ankle. I've had to postpone my returning back to work twice now, and my next return to work date is next Wednesday. My Dr. had said to walk normal on the foot and I should have listened to him. It's so easy to favor one side of the foot when getting back to walking but for me it extended my healing longer.
