4 Weeks Post-Op

Officially cleared to walk. The surgeon did give me a stern talking to about following his orders but after checking my DF he has cleared me to walk and start taking wedges out to be ready to see him with 2 shoes in 3 weeks. But he has not said I can start PT until my appointment with him. Different protocols across the board for this injury, apparently.

My injury is a little different in that it is lower than most ATRs in that it was really low and close to my heel. Which is another reason I was to follow strict doctor’s orders in not walking until today….oh well, I will do so from now on and be extra careful.

He also said I was ok to start standing in the shower. I told him that was uncomfortable and to not do it until it is.

I am so excited to be able to take a wedge out!…maybe 2:D

  1. I’m with you on the shower - nothing to really gain and lots to lose! Sounds like you’re healing well -you’ll really make gains when you start PT!

  2. Hi Kimjax, yes the shower is iffy but it did make me feel more confident about taking a wedge out yesterday (3 left in the boot). I also tried to stand without the boot. THAT was scary!….so, for now, still gonna shower sitting down.
