Post Op Visit 3

Monday 6/16/14
I’ve spent the last two weeks in a hard cast. After removing it, the doc said everything was going fine. He checked my ROM and was very pleased to see how much movement I could do. He gave me the option of wearing a cast for another two weeks or a boot. The boot, duh! He explained that I am still non-weight bearing (NWB) and I will get the wedges in my boot in two weeks, then I’ll be partial weight bearing (PWB). I can also take the boot off to shower and do little movements to help the fibers heal in the right direction. I still have to sleep with it on. He also is allowing me to go back to work. He said that I can’t work too long and I might have to take numerous breaks though. He said in two weeks I can start working full shifts. Baby steps!
