Just like Scotty my doctor wasn't gentle! And also the same I was to support the joint and just move the toe from the joint outwards. I have a permanent screw (very small from the look of the x-ray) and when I started the ROM exercises I don't think the bone was fused yet, but I wasn't putting any pressure on that site. I am now almost 8 weeks and just had an x-ray taken on Monday and the doctor was pleased with how well things have fused. He still is aggressive with testing my ROM and emphasizes downward flexion as well as upward.
I was only NWB a few days and started heel walking in a surgical boot almost immediately. I have been in that the whole time though. I will be back in a regular shoe with orthotic next week. I did have two metatarsals shortened which is why my recovery is longer than less invasive surgeries.
I understand your concern at being at 11 weeks and non-fused, it seems like such a long time that my foot has been the center of my universe, I am anxious to have my real life back!
