    I had the Chevron procedure done 7 days ago. I'm PWB with crutches and a boot. I'm just curious to know how long it took most of you to feel comfortable enough to walk FWB.

    Overall it hasn't been too bad. After the nerve block wore off was the most painful but 7 days out I'm managing the pain with Tylonel, ice and elevation.

    I have two screws, one in the metacarpal head, which according to my foot surgeon, will dissolve in about 9 months (I never even knew something like that existed) and one permanent screw.
