After surgery to remove small ganglion cyst of tendon on back of big toe, how long will the pain persist and when would I be able to wear a dress shoe?

Good Recovery. Remember, you have to walk on - what was operated on... Allow the surgical wound to heal properly. Sutures usually are removed at two to three weeks after the procedure with gradual progression to regular shoes and normal activities. Review your post operative course with your surgeon. Happy feet ! -h-.
