Hello,

I am 36 years old and quite active.  had a lapidus procedure 8 days ago, everything went as well as can be expected.  3 screws were used to hold the bones together.

My question is in general.   How long will it take for me to be able to play ice hockey again.  An ice hockey skate is quite tight, and there is constant pressure applied to the skate especially when you stop and turn constantly over a 90 minute period of time.

I was hoping for 3 months full recovery, but based on all of my reading, this seems unrealistic.  

Any feedback would  be appreciated.  Thank you,
