Got the boot off

August 3, 2008 · 2 Comments

hi all,

        Got the ok to hand the boot back from the surgeon last wed best day ever  i repeat the best day ever and i am finally wearing 2 shoes for the frist time in 3 months. Have been for two 5km walks without any pain which is so good. I am still walking with a limp even though i dont really have any pain ( i think i have trained myself to walk this way). Feels so good to look down and just see 2 matching pairs of shoes, it seems like this day would never come. Looks like everything is going well both the surgeon and the physio are very happy with my progress anyway hope everyone is well. To all the people who are behind me in the marathon you will finish it one day so stay positive. Have a good day

    Congrats!! Just rememeber eventually to walk correctly. I didn’t realize that I wasn’t for a couple of weeks. You really have to concentrate to try to get the “push off” with out a complete push off. Its easier and less painful to just plant your foot then limp, which is what I did for those few weeks. At the appt I had when I was ok’d to go to two shoes, my doc said, “next appt, I want you walking in here without a limp”. I thought, no problem, that’s a month from now. Well, a month passed quickly, my appt is today. Thankfully I realized my walking issue a couple of weeks ago! Lets hope that was enough time to correct it!

    How many weeks did you wear the boot? I’ve had my boot for 1 week now with a 2cm wedge and was told it comes out in another week. You know the big soccer field by Cromer Community Centre? I’ll be celebrating the day I can finally run around the park!
