Finally, this week I have been starting to walk around with no crutches in my boot! To me, this was a major milestone as I got over the fear of putting them down and starting to trust the boot. Im still using 2 for long distances, one crutch occiosionally jsut for some support and none anytime I am home or at work. I do get a bit sore in the achellies area from time to time but nothing crazy.
My knee actually hurts on my boot/bad leg as my walking stride is not normal.. Did anyone else have this? any tips and tricks for walking with the boot? How long before you guys “went into the world” with no crutches??
Im almost at 6 weeks and will be starting to do some 2 leg heel raises and start getting some of that strength back. 2.5 more weeks until I have the OK to drive, but still about a month and a half more of the boot. (seems my doc is only consertive when it comes to how long i need to wear the boot.. 10 weeks all together).
