Post Surgery

Had surgery 5 weeks ago. Brostrom procedure and arthroscopic. Everything is going well I assume. Back to work still no weight bearing. I of course am putting a little weight on it here and there. My question is pain in the heel area, what might be causing that and should I be concerned. Thank you.

Re: Post Surgery

No weight bearing means do not put weight on it. If you are experiencing pain it could be from the weight you are putting on it.

Best success after surgery is following doctors orders. Unfortunately non compliance typically leads to poor outcomes / repeat surgeries.
