it depends on what type of surgery you're having.. are you on crutches or will you have any pins or screws that have to be removed?

i had a base wedge osteotomy and was on crutches for 6 weeks and had a pin in my 2nd toe for about 4 weeks. after the pin was removed i was able to get my foot wet in the bath. i didn't put my foot in a pool until the scars were totally healed. once i was off the crutches i had an aircast for 4 weeks and a surgical shoe for another 2 or 3. i didn't walk barefoot on my foot for a few weeks after that, mostly because i was too nervous to do anything to it.
