Julie, I wouldn’t count on being able to walk 2 days after starting weight bearing. Your muscles have atrophied, you will be weak from inactivity, and frankly, it takes time to relearn to walk. From what I’ve read on other sites, many surgeons don’t understand this! All they care about is the bone, which should be strong enough to support your weight after 12 weeks, but they don’t specialize in soft tissue injuries. You may want to think about a back-up plan for the event, like bedazzling a walker if it’s a dressy event. Also think about a dressy slipper or flip-flop, you probably won’t even be able to wear a shoe on the affected foot. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s better to be informed and prepared than scrambling at the last minute.
