  • His doctor should have been very specific as to when he can put weight on foot. Sometimes doctors will put patients in an orthopedic boot for a few weeks. Tell him not to be in a hurry and not to be disappointed when he can't walk. It takes time and sometimes physical therapy to get things moving right again.
