Well, at least one foot and one boot, but I must say it feels mighty nice to be Partial Weight Bearing. First thing I did after getting back home, was take a shower. A real shower, not one involving plastic covers, open shower curtains and leg hanging out of the tub. Still using the chair, but that’s not really all that bad!
I’ve got the nice spaghetti leg calf going, but it’s not quite as bad as I thought. Doc said I can do some very limited ROM for the next few weeks. Says I’ll have to wear the boot for 6 weeks and in about 4 weeks I can start strength training. He did say I could go swimming right away if I wanted. Might have to give that a try! Right now looking forward to the next step two weeks from now - losing the crutches.
