I’ve been back in the boot for going on two months now – off and on. I’m wearing it more now than when I first had the surgery. I have good days and bad days with my lower heal becoming sore as the day goes on if I’m out of the boot too long. More recently I’ve been having better days and I’ve been walking around my house with no or very little pain. It’s thankfully still winter and the weather is horrible so I don’t have any yardwork I can do which would only complicate my issue. I have the time to rest this and hopefully get it right. I encourage anyone reading this who is just starting out to take it EASY. Use your boot when told to use it – even if the Dr. says you can go without it from time to time – you are better off using it to take the pressure off that heel area. I’m not doing any rehab right now – only light stretching and some mobility drills to keep range of motion. I will get back to rehab when the pain is consistently gone without the boot. I have good days and bad days, but the good have been getting more frequent. In looking at the lump on my heel, I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to run long distance again. Feel free to take a look at this recent video. Anyone with any advice – I’d appreciate your thoughts. Thanks. Good luck – be patient.
