In brief: Heel spur

Depends if the spur was on the bottom of the heel or the back of the heel.
If on bottom than yes if on back than typical. At 6 weeks you just just start rehab.

In brief: Depends

Heel spurs typically do not cause pain so it is not clear what the surgery was for. If you had a plantar fascia release, recovery could take up to six months.
