Orthopedic surgeries can be postponed and you may wait till you go back to your country.

Meanwhile, you may wear a brace to avoid weight bearing on the affected limb.

You may use crutches or a wheelchair by the time surgery is done.

I hope your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.
