Just back from the doctor

Well I’m at 4 weeks post-op and just came back from the doctor. Doc says that I can transition to FWB over the next few days with the boot on. I’m happy to get this anticipated change but I’m also fearful of a re-rupture.

Also the doc says I can slowly remove the wedges form my boot over the next month - one at a time. No cardio at all for at least 6 weeks, though.

So I came home and started moving around with one crutch putting more weight on my foot. Foot feels mostly good, but I can tell that it’s going to take some time. I also realized that there’s quite a height difference between the leg with my boot and my uninjured leg. This seems like a challenge and may not be as freedom producing as I originally thought.

On the note, I decided to splurge on the vascocast and the even up for the other foot. I’m hoping that it will make the transition to FWB more enjoyable or, at least, bearable.

So that’s where I am at. My hope is to be able to make it to the gym next week to do some upper body work. I’ve defiantly put on weight since all I do is sit around all day. I am back at work, but I’m sitting most of the time. One thing I am looking forward to is not needing my IWALK to go to the bathroom. That makes it quite the production!
