Today marks one week out of the cast. Didn’t go into the boot– instead, no weight bearing on the leg for two more weeks and then well.. I guess we’ll see.
Heard that the boot helps decrease the swelling. Is that true? And how much swelling is normal? This is my leg yesterday after a normal, not so majorly active day.
It doesn’t hurt at all (nothing like the swelling the first few days after surgery when you feel like your leg is being smothered by a python) so should I even be worried about alleviating the swelling? Any long-term damage by not doing so?
I can feel a slight tingling when I touch the scar though. You can feel the sensation shoot down through the foot. Wondering what this means but first PT session in the am so I’ll learn more.
Excited about finally to start putting a training plan in place and moving forward in this process!
