Two weeks and two days now since surgery.  Post op got moved from today until Monday…..due to the surgeon having an emergency.   Seems like a long time to go ……Monday will be 19 days since surgery, but it is what it is.

Thankfully, still no pain, and the foot is feeling great!  Still, NWB of course.  Getting used to this life by telling myself, I am halfway through this NWB portion……should be in a boot by week 4 and can start to put down partial weight.  And, begin taking baby steps with the walker and boot, then no walker.

Assuming that others will eventually begin reading this, I was too nervous to do crutches.  I have a walker, more stable in my opinion, and insurance paid for a knee scooter.  I use this the most…….very easy to get around the house….we do have hardwood floors, but it will move on carpeting, too.    The best thing is that it does allows you to be hands free a little

  1. Good luck. The first 4 weeks are the most difficult. You need to get your mind in the right place and accept that it is a frustrating 4 weeks that you just need to live through. After the first 4 weeks everything starts to return to normal.
