How long does it take to recover from neuroma surgery?


As with any surgical procedure, there are no “hard and fast” timetables for recovery—it always depends on a wide variety of factors, including the severity of your initial condition, the type of surgery performed, your overall health, your ability to follow post-operative instructions faithfully, and more.

That said, we can offer some general guidelines for neuroma surgery recovery. After the procedure you’ll need to wear a protective boot until you’re healthy enough to walk on your own; this period lasts from about 2 weeks to 1 month in most cases. You should be back in your own shoes soon (if not immediately) after that, usually no more than 6 weeks after the initial surgery. Minor swelling may last a bit longer.

While no one likes being off their feet for a few days or weeks, neuroma surgery often gives people the best chance to eliminate chronic pain and go back to living a normal, pain-free life.
