first week 2 shoes

Filed under: Uncategorized — gottheboot at 6:10 pm on Sunday, September 7, 2008

Made it through my first week at work with 2 shoes.  Still limping a bit and not exactly a speed walker but its good to no longer have to wear the boot.  The backache from the uneven gait from wearing the boot is gone and my left foot is thanking my right foot for finally sharing the load so to speak.    One more step toward the “healed” process.  Saw my doctor this week also and he’s very happy with my progress and has me coming back in 3 months and only then if I feel it’s necessary.  Things are slowing looking up.

Great job and congrats on your two shoe status and docs approval of your progress!! I’m 13 weeks also, but still very tight and not able to get to 90 degrees yet. I’m at 77 degrees of neutral which makes it hard to stand normally. I’m in two shoes, but am still alternating between one crutch and two depending on the pain level I’m at. See ortho Tues. for 6 wk. check up—wonder what he’s going to say to me….ugh.
Keep up the great work!

I was given a cane for walking to help retrain my gait. After a few days I’m now able to ditch the cane.
