arthoplasty fourth and fifth digit

I had a small secton of bone removed from my 4th and 5 toes on the left foot to correct a deformity 4 weeks ago. 2 weeks later the same surgery on the rt fifth toe. the rt feel great but the left is still swollen and painful. I can't even tolerate a sheet over it. The doc says it looks good. (I cant take nsaids due to colitis).
How long is it normal to experience discomfort and swelling?
How can I get a shoe on this foot (It snowed today)
I cant work yet because I stand for long shifts?
Is this normal?
