Day 3 of PWB with crutches. I was able already to move to just 1 crutch. It is actually much easier to move around, but it is much more tiring. My ankle swells but I have been using a lot a special gelpack wrap around my ankle several times each day. Dr. gave me about 13 different range of motion and strengthening exercises to do to prepare my leg for PT when the time comes. My achilles was a little sore after the first session. The range of motion exercises took an immediate effect the next day. I could tell a huge improvement. Thing really get better once you get out of a hard cast and can start to stretch and exercise.
