What type of function returned after a mid foot fusion?

I had my talonaviculAR and subtalor bones fused, along with a gastrocnemius release. I am wondering if people have returned jobs that required a lot of walking, standing, climbing stairs, and walking on uneven ground? My surgery was Oct 9th, 2015 and it is now February 10th, 2016. I am in Physical Therapy. I hope to be out of the walking boot (am full weight bearing) by next week, but there is still lots of swelling and I can't walk or stand for very long.
