What is the recovery time for surgery of a torn big toe tendon that was severed all the way?

Posted by Bigtoetendons

I dropped a candle holder on my toe and severed two tendons.  One that raises my big toe and the one next to it. I had emergency surgery on 4/7/2010.  I am currently in a cast.  I was told last week I could start putting weight on it with the aid of crutches or my walker. I have put very little weight on it and I am in a ton of pain by the end of the day.  I would guess I am taking less than 30 steps a day.  Is the pain normal?  How long is the recovery process?  This has been much harder than I had ever anticipated. Any advice is welcome.  Thank you.
