When I saw the doctor yesterday (8 weeks 2 days post op) he said that I am to take the last wedge out this Sunday and the following Sunday ditch the boot for an “airtrainer” - or something like that and go to two shoes. The “trainer” is a compression sock with a wedge at the heel. Doesn’t look very supportive to me. I will be at 10 weeks at that time.
Since I a rerupture and since the rerupture occurred the last time they took me out of the boot I am scared. I didn’t sleep a wink last night. Doesn’t this seem too soon? I want to wait until 12 weeks at least. Are there bad consequences for staying in the boot too long? I just may not be a good patient — and refuse to leave the boot.
