Just wanted to report in with my progress. I’m 4 weeks after surgery and was put into a boot by my doctor last night. It sure felt good to ditch the cast. My doc told me to not put weight on it, but to shower and take care of my scar and foot. Once out of his office, I immediately touched the boot down and had no pain whatsoever. I then tried bearing all weight and still everything felt fine. I’m wondering if my doc is being too conservative with his advice.
At work today, I’ve been mixing it up with crutches and the boot with no real problems. I’m felling a slight soreness in the foot, and twice today I felt an elevated pain in the Achilles from walking in the boot. Not much, lets say a 2 out of 10. Any thoughts on whether I’m an idiot for not staying on crutches?
