Week 3 First Follow Up

My first follow up with the orthopaedic surgeon.  Week 3 (16 days after the op).  A quick 5 minute check up.  He confirmed that everything is where it is supposed to be.

I keep the cast on for another 2 weeks.  That is 4 weeks in total.  Non weight bearing.  The cast comes off on 15th September 2016.

Then boot and partial weight bearing for 2 weeks.  Then full weight bearing.  Target date is 1st October 2016.

My wife says that we are saving a fortune as I don’t go shopping any more.

  1. Hey, I think we are on a pretty similar schedule.

    I ruptured it on 8/19. I just got my cast off on 9/16. Now I am on a Vacocast for 2 weeks (PWB). Then FWB.

  2. Thanks for the feedback. My cast came off a day before yours on 15th September. It was a weird feeling starting to put weight on the foot again. I had been treating my leg like a land mine for 4 weeks and had to re-calibrate my mind again to start using it. I have been doing physio for the last couple of weeks and going back to gym for some light exercise.
    Every day I start to feel more normal.
    Good luck with your recovery.
