FWB at last

At 6 weeks my doctor gave me clearance for FWB….it was harder mentally to get there than I thought but each day I added more weight and felt more confident and at 7 weeks I could take a few steps. Then the next few days got much better, much faster. Today (7 weeks 4 days) I’m FWB all the time (no crutches at all) and feeling like the worst of this ordeal may be behind me. My heel is sore when I walk but no Achilles pain at all. Just wanted to share…hope everyone is doing well.

    That’s great! Having just come out of the cast, started physio and been given ok to PWB, I’m finding it very hard to try and put any weight properly through the bad leg. Hoping to be more confident in a few days myself.
    Hope all continues well for you.

    Thansk for sharing… I’ve just gone FWB (in the boot) this week, 5 weeks 5 days post-op and felt that was a little early, but I feel better knowing I’m not alone.

    Next week (6 weeks 4 days post-op) my PT wants me to bring in a left shoe.

    All the best.
