Doing the moon walk, in my moon boot……

Friday 3rd September 2010
So today I took out wedge one……….*woop woop* one down three to go!!!

I started to put weight through my leg, pretty much straight away. So now I’m moving 38 times slower on crutches than I was yesterday and by lunch time I was down to one crutch!!!!! Jake the Peg strides on…….

By the end of the day I could partially weight bare through it, WITH……………WAIT FOR IT……………….no crutches!!!  Which means I am now officially doing the moon walk three weeks after surgery pain free and started some theraband work through my foot and calf :D

    I think any walking without crutches or a cane — however funny or “moon-like” — is FWB. When your uninjured foot moves forward from one spot to another, all your weight is on your injured foot, so that’s Full Weight.

    Many of us have felt joyful, maybe surprisingly so, when reaching these big milestones in our recovery. Being able to get around better, do more, carry stuff — why not enjoy it?

    Congratulations on FWB. It will likely take a few days to be more comfortable with the weight. Be sure to try to raise your good foot so that you’re balanced and your hips are even. This will decrease the chances of hip or knee pain and also will make it much easier and more comfortable to walk. You can find ways to accomplish this on my blog and also on normofthenorth’s blog.
