The boot is off!!

The long awaited day arrives - I can officially remove the boot!! Walking barefoot just because I can - it feels odd but good odd. Right foot feels “flat” although if I concentrate it behaves itself. Someone else said they had a “gimp” walk and I feel a bit like that, it isn’t exactly dragging but it isn’t “normal” either.

The exercises are going well-ish. Ankle rotation is doing well, toe and heel raises are hard work, if I don’t concentrate the left leg (the good one) takes all the strain. That way lies falling over as I suddenly lose my balance.

However, progress is being made, physio next week and I’ll be asking about driving and cycling.

If the bottom of your sole and (esp) heel aren’t sore and hyper-sensitive, you’re in the lucky minority!
