Well the cast came off today and I was fully expecting to be fitted for a boot well… imagine my surprise when my doc says no boot and try and ween yourself off the crutches in the next 3 to 4 days. Physio starts on tues.
So there I am only one shoe on my good foot and a short sock on my bad one crutching through the hospital, AWESOME.
It feels so strange for my right foot to touch the ground (felt great to place it on the grass without a sock on) the last time it was there it felt like it was just hanging there…Well you all know how that feels.
After being in 4 casts over 8 weeks it does not seem as unstable as I was expecting, don’t get me wrong I’m not suggesting that I could go FWB in a stride but I am amazed at how stable it is standing and transfering weight from my left leg to my right with the crutches in my left hand not touching the ground. Not sure if that feeling will stay with me when I crawl into bed tonight or not but I will deal with that later tonight.
There has been no pain in the tendon or calf or even the heel for that matter. My ankle well that is sore, not a bunch of pain it just twinges now and then.
So here is the million dollar question is it better to go bare foot when I can or wear my shoes ?
on another note how do we insert pics in the blogs ?
