Recovery Time Plantar Fasciitis
Ask your sugeon: I am kind of surprised this question would be asked after the surgery and not before. All doctors have different protocols. You did not mention if you are on crutches, in a cast, in a splint, allowed to walk? Did you have the plantar fascia cut? Was a bone spur resected as well? All this info would be needed to know. Without knowing i would tell you 6-8 weeks. But that depends on many variables. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
