In brief: Where is it???

I know it seems like an obvious question, but depending on exactly where the spur is at, there can be a number of possible answers.
Sorry!

In brief: Bone spur

First everyone is assuming the spur is on the bottom or the back of the heel.
You don't state where the spur is - and there are alot of places to have painful boney spurs on a foot.

In brief: Depends

Recovery will depend on the procedure.
If an opening is made on the bottom of the foot, it'll take at least 3 weeks for the skin to heal before you can put weight on it. There are minimally invasive procedures that may require less time to recover. There is no way of knowing for sure exactly how long it will take you to recover.
