I had the above mentioned surgeries done to my left foot on July 7, 2010. I was in casts and NWB until August 12, 2010 when my dr. removed the cast and put me in a boot and said I could do PWB. Do I always have to wear the boot even if i'm sitting at my desk at work?

I'm not sure what the terms for all the medical procedures that were done, but I know my dr. fixed the bunions near the big toe(cut, realign, shave) and little toe and broke the heel bone to give me an arch. There are 5 screws in my foot that will be taken out after the 3 month mark. My foot is swollen most of the time as well, but it is not too painful.

Has anyone else had both of these surgeries done at the same time? If so, what was the healing time for you? I can hobble around for a while putting weight on my surgery foot while in the boot. Recently, my calf has started to hurt and I'm not sure if it because I'm using it more or because I had flat foot surgery and nothing was done about the tendon in the leg. Any advice/word of encouragmenet/past experience would be appreciated, thanks!
