Week 7

At 7 weeks I’m walking around pretty comfortably in the boot with the even up shoe on the other foot. It is easy to do too much though. With the new found freedom I’m walking all of the time. At the end of the day my heel hurts.
I purposely walked a mile and it was no problem. I have two inserts left in my boot and I’m taking one out today. The first physical therapy session was virtual because I had to leave town. I have a stretch band for resistance and have isometric exercises (30 seconds x 3 reps) to move the foot eversion/outwards, inversion/inwards, plantar flexion to neutral.
I will transition out of the boot next week!
The physical therapist gave the approval to ride a stationary bike with a seat. I will see the therapist again tomorrow. That is one small step towards progress and a giant leap for my mindset!
Also, I began driving last week. I couldn’t take it anymore. I was careful to be sure I could drive around the block with no issues first. The injury is on my right foot which of course is my driving foot. I’m confident that I can drive safely so that is just another slice of freedom to enjoy!
