The decision to have surgery should be based on many factors such as expected downtime, family obligations, expense, family support, do you have to drive yourself? As you can see, there is no one size fits all answer.

When patients ask when they will be wearing shoes, that is somewhat misleading since different procedures have different healing times. Your age and health are also factors.

You should ask your doctor these questions and only proceed when you are comfortable understanding the answers.

That being said, there are numerous internet sites that offer information, but your best bet is to discuss this with your doctor.

Good luck.
