Recovery and walking after Os Trigonum surgery

I had surgery for Os Trigonum almost three weeks ago. Initially, my surgeon said that I would be able to walk in a boot around 3-4 days after surgery. I am still on crutches and keep trying each day to get my boot on and it hasn't been possible. The pain still exists and the two days that I was able to get on my boot the pain of putting weight on my foot was extremely excrutiating. Is this normal? Should I be concerned about the slow recovery? When will I be able to walk again?!?

Hi there!

Occasionally it may take some time for the inflammation to settle down. At this time you may benefit from physiotherapy and anti-inflammatory medication. I would also suggest an evaluation by your doctor to rule out secondary issues like infections etc.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
