8 Weeks Post Surgery!

October 3rd, 2008 · 2 Comments

8 Weeks ago today, 8/8/08: the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games, the Cubs were playing good baseball, and I went under the knife.  My how time flies when you’re having fun?

I’ve been out of the cast and attending PT for 2 weeks now.  I am still on crutches - PWB, but gaining strength and flexibility on the right leg.  I hope to ditch the crutches in the next week or so.  It’s strange to not have a boot or anything on the leg…I just wear a sock.

I went to the Cubs playoff game Wednesday night, and wore a ski sock and a shoe for the first time.  It felt good overall….but major swelling by the time I got home that night.  I’m sure the draft Old Styles had something to do with it.

PT is coming along well….driving more often now.  It’s my hope that a week from now, the Cubs will still be playing baseball - and I’ll be off the crutches.

Final thought: kudos to all the wives, husbands, significant others, friends, grandparents, cats and dogs who put up with all of us who are recovering from the P.I.T.A. injury.  Thank you.

    Good Day Mate Howard from Australia, Was opperated August 21, am wanting to go on Holidays from Nov 4, I am really worried as I dont really know how my progress is, I am not expieriencing any pain but some stiffness and little sorness, I am not putting any weight on my foot apart from standing with slight weight only. I have been in a half cast for 3 weeks with one week to go, I take it off 3 times a day and do exsersises (30 toe extentions) at the moment I am paranoid about it healing and I will be able to get around without crutchers by Nov 3 I am 63. I see the doc in 1 week I cant wait to see how I am going it is very frustrating not to know how you are progressing.
