Broken Bride on the Mend - Six Weeks Non-op

Six weeks post injury is a bit of a milestone for me. My ATR was three weeks before the wedding and I’m now three weeks past the wedding. Six is also the number of weeks I recall the ER doc telling me it would take to heel. It seems these doctors know what they are talking about.┬áThis past weekend, almost six weeks to the day, I set my boot to neutral and ditched my crutches. Little things like packing my own suitcase and carrying a cup of coffee were celebrated. I have to admit after a full weekend of walking crutch free, I was exhausted. My under used hip, quad and glute muscles were very sore - it’s funny how every little step towards heeling brings a new set of aches. But all in the name of progress.

The other day I was in a client meeting and one of the web guys explained what “retargeting” is on the web. Browsers track things you search/google for then start online advertising to you according to your searches. And because we’re a very immature group of people in advertising, someone had to take the opportunity to crack an offside joke.
My client: “So is this why penis enlargement ads keep popping up on my screen?”
Obligatory laugh from everyone.
My client: “Sad thing is, it must be my wife doing the searching.”
Laughter again.
I thought about my own online patterns and how things have changed. Six weeks ago, bad wedding/bride ads popped up everywhere. Now it seems my searches have shifted and a different category of bad ads have started appearing.
Six weeks ago:

Kkirk it is funny you say that. Last year in our gift exchange between good friends, someone did give one of those as a gag gift. Needless to say we were laughing for a long time about it,

While it takes about 6 weeks for an AT to heal enough to go FWB in a boot, it will take 6-12 months for the AT to reach maximum strength.

Have you raised the level of your non-booted foot to the same level as your booted foot? If not, doing so will help with the aches and pains.

I’ve always felt that while you don’t have to be a perv to be in marketing, it sure helps when dealing with certain clients. LOL

Hey Starshep, I didn’t have my lower wedge with me the weekend I started without crutches. But yes, the lower wedge has definitely helped eliminate hip pain. Shovelling snow from the sidewalks probably wasn’t wise during my first couple of days crutch free.

After the six week, your posts is really helpful for me because I was looking such type of stuff. I appreciate your progress in this category and now it’s easier to get help with my assignment from our qualified team. Thank you!

21 weeks. 1 leg. 10 times.

At 21 weeks to the day, I was able to do a single leg calf raises. It was five days later than my PT had predicted. It’s been a huge mental gain for me as I didn’t think it would ever happen. All the other milestones just came naturally without much thought: I just stopped [...]
