3wks 6 days post op, physio, elliptical bike riding and followup on boot transition

Here is how I ended up in a boot so quickly, I took my boot with me to the 6 days post- op checkup and on examination my foot was already pretty much in neutral. I had very little swelling and so we (surgeon and I together) decided I could go with he boot and NWB provided I was very careful getting my foot in and out slowly. I started physical therapy at 13 days post op doing range of motion exercises and PABS board (sitting down), this week I stood barefoot for the first time at physical therapy.
It’s amazing how much of a difference being able to drop first one crutch ( carry a cup of coffee myself) and then the second (carry a plate of food) made to my sense of wellbeing and progress.
