Re: Navicular surgery - internal fixation

Certainly you have had a rough go of it and I sympathize with you. Your surgeon seems to be making the best of a not so good situation. You should talk to the physical therapist about what things you need to do to build up strength. Having been immobilized usually means there will be a period of getting strength back. (I tell my patients it takes twice as long to recover as you were imnmobilized)
