It really depends on what surgery you are talking about. The best doctor to let you know the answer would be the surgeon who will be doing the procedure. Other questions to ask would be will you be able to walk on it right away and if not, how long will that be? Will driving be affected? These are all questions the surgeon will be able to answer. Good luck to you!
