Hello fellow ATR’ers!

I’m now 26 days post surgery and very glad to have found this site.  I’m just scratching the surface of this site’s benefits but am sure there’s a lot of available help.

In 9 days my cast comes off and I go into the boot/brace.  My doc tells me I still have 6-7 weeks of crutches after I ditch the cast for the boot but based on some of the information I’m seeing on this site - that sounds too long.  Any one have some advice on what to expect when I get my boot on?

Sincerely yours in recovery,
