Past 2.5 months..Walking again (kinda)

January 24th, 2016

Well I went to the OS thinking I was walking in boot with one elevated shoe/sneaker but my OS said ok take the boot off and put both sneakers on … I said what the hell are you talking about he said you are gonna walk today.. I said not a chance.. Was scared to walk but it felt awesome to be back on two feet. I am isn’t Cain and it’s hard to not think about it and I favor one side and limp. My OS said stop thinking about it and try and walk …it feels weird and my foot aches a bit .. There is quite a bit of swelling after a while he said its blood flow .. I am taking it slow .. He said I can use knee walker for longer distances now but keep waking and when I come back k from vacation Ina week has me going for some PT .. I can put foot in pool and lightly kick or swish it a bit but not hard nor back .. He doesn’t want me to stand in it unless in the shoes with 1-5 plus heels … Nighttime foot hurts a bit and swells ..anyone have any advice … Also any advice on walking again .. Feels great .. Those who are 2-6 weeks Post op.. Hand in there you will be waking before you know it ..

    Good for you!
    Re swelling: Icing and elevating are you best help. I was still icing and elevating my foot after activity at 6 months.
    Good luck to you.

    Just like that and you’re in 2 shoes! Very cool, congrats. Take the walking slow for now. You need to learn how to roll from heel to toe when you walk, and I found step through exercises helped give me the confidence to do this as well as trying to mimic my good leg. I wouldn’t worry about it too much for now, your PT will help you once you get back. Enjoy the cruise and take care!

    Ok day 3 of quasi walking on and off with knee seller and without .. Getting some sensation in the foot lots of tingling and numbness .. Keeping the stocking on …. Will have to ice it later and looking g forward to having it in the jacuzzi … Can’t wait for PT .. I can see Siome Rays at the end of the tunnel … Have a long way to go but excited I’m past the no weight bearing … All those who are 2 months in hang in there it gets better … I was a misery and while I’m no joy I’m much better … Can’t wait to figure out how to walk again
