In brief: Follow up

With your surgeon, let them know your condition.
Be patient but concerned. 2 weeks post- op is still considered part of the healing time.

In brief: Needs time to heal

Heel and nerve surgery can take several months to completely heal.
Post-op treatments could include anti-inflammatory medications, a night splint, physical therapy, a TENS unit, MLS laser treatments.

In brief: Give it time!

2 weeks was yesterday so to speak.
Right now please give it time. The surgery is done, right or wrong, but the best thing to do now is give it time. Making rash move in the post op period can be dangerous. In the future get on an aggressive calf stretching program.
