Hi: I"m 8 weeks post-op and doing well. I had both feet done and was in a cast on the forefoot for three weeks. My first shoes were Birkenstock sandals. I kept my forefoot wrapped with 3 inch coban bandage to prevent swelling at the site of the incision. I could remove the bandage at night and I always kept my feet elevated on 2 pillows when sleeping. At 6weeks I could wear an athletic shoe with a thin sock ( for about 2 hours at a time.)
At 8 weeks I can walk in my shoes for about 3 hours off and on. The swelling in my feet is very minimal now. I am still not back to work as I have a job that requires a great deal of walking and being on my feet constantly.. If you follow your Dr's orders and be patient you will do well. Good luck

Regards Bridget.
