It’s been a while since I have posted. Been pretty busy I guess! Even though I have not had a chance to post, I read the blog daily…keeps me optimistic! Thanks everyone!
I ended up wearing my cast for 3 weeks and have now been wearing a boot for almost 2 weeks. I am still NWB, so I am using crutches to get around. I seem to have adapted pretty well to my crutches and try to stay positive by thinking about the great upper body workout I have been getting. I also have a scooter that I use to help me get around at work rather quickly.
Although the atrophy in my injured leg is upsetting for me to see, my recovery seems to be going very well. I see the doc again in a little over a week and will hopefully get the ok to go PWB and start physical therapy. At my last visit, I asked my doc if he thought it would be possible for me to go on my annual ski/snowboard trip to Colorado in February (which would be 6 months post rupture). Much to my surprise, he said he feels there is a strong chance that I will be ready by February!
As we have all come to know, the recovery “tunnel” is rather long and at times seems endless. However, I am happy to write that I feel I am now starting to see the light at the end of it…which didn’t seem possible just a few weeks ago.
