What is the Recovery Time After Foot Surgery?

It is important to know the recommended procedures and typical recovery time for foot surgery before you even go into the operation. This will help you be able to plan accordingly for post-operation care.

You may require a nerve-blocking procedure prior to your surgery. This will likely leave your foot numb afterwards which can last from 3 to 15 hours. You will be prescribed medication to help with pain management.

In addition, it is recommended that you elevate your foot above heart level, whether in bed or on a couch, in order to minimize swelling. Any weight bearing or physical activities must be avoided for the first few weeks. Icing is an important part of the post-operative routine.

Do not expect to be able to work for the first one to four weeks following your foot surgery. After this time period, you might have to undergo physical therapy.
