I had abunionectomy a little more than 4 weeks ago. Even though my foot was broken as part of the procedures, my doctor didn't place me in a cast. I have been using a removable velcro boot. At first I kept the boot on all the time, but it's uncomfortable. For the last 2 weeks I have removed it in order to sleep and when I am going to be sitting for long periods of time. Do you think removing the boot as I have described will delay healing?
I'm afraid to ask my doctor about this since he always threatens to put me in a cast. At my 4 week check-up, he said I was healing well and the x-rays looked good.
