I don't know if walking is the right word  I kinda move foward with crutches.  I was up 4 hrs post op.

The biggest pain is literally like a killer shin splint ,, made worse by the years of compromised  muscle function.

One word for lightweight hiking shit: cuben fiber.

Ok I guess that's two words - cause it's twice as expensive. But worth it.
