I just got my knuckle bone removed out of my pinky toe15 min ago. Can I have put my sock on? I forgot to ask him. He put gauze and an ACE bandage on.

In brief: If the sock fits

More times than not, a stockinette type tube stocking is applied before you leave the operatory.
If you were not given one, then by all means wear your sock if it fits over the bandage. It might get a little bloody, but what the heck.
