6 week review: black cloud lifting

Filed under: Uncategorized — purple at 6:25 am on Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Hi all,

I’m now 6 weeks post AT repair and had my second follow up today, with lots of positives from my surgeon!! I’m so excited to be fully weight bear as tolerated, but remain in vacoped for another 4 weeks. I start physio tomorrow and can take my boot off to shower!! I’m allowed to start riding a bike!! I can go back to work full time!! Suddenly a big black cloud has lifted and the sun is shining through!

I’m so excited to get off these crutches very soon and regain some independence. I’m sure my partner is also, poor thing!!

Anyway that’s all, wanted to share my excitement at some progress and a change in mood!!

Congratulations. You are on your way now. Physio, biking, showering, working–there’s no stopping you. Good luck :)

What fun! I loved it when I could take the boot off to shower. Ahhh- such little pleasures. We’ll have to remember them when we’re back to our old selves and little things get us down! Enjoy you new found freedom.

Congrats! I’m a week ahead of you but still limited to PWB. You’re an advertisement for the faster protocol!
