The good is my doctor was willing to consider letting me go into a boot sooner rather than later. The bad is she said if I rerupture my Achilles because of it I would need to find another surgeon to fix it. (said with a smile) The ugly is my leg is shrinking. I can already tell my cast is getting looser by the day. One of my friends asked me how my “kickstand” is doing. I had to laugh but I’m afraid to see how pale and twiggy my leg is going to be.
I’m happy that there is light at the end of this tunnel. Trying to get around on crutches is hard. I’m just really glad this is temporary.
