Boot On

August 21, 2013 · 1 Comment

Yesterday was a big day - splint off, staples out and boot on - 12 days post surgery. Man is this wedge big and clumsy! My left calf is only slight smaller and slacker than than right. Incision is healing well.

All the pointers on crutches provided by this community - my Achilles Recovery buddies - has really helped. Sores on my chest wall are healing and I now have the crutches at the right height, in the right position. A friend also lent me a scooter that I just use on the main floor of my house - it is fantastic to be able to carry things around!

I have backed off the crossfit work outs some - I was getting exhausted. My Doctor did reluctantly approve of my erging/rowing Achilles Recovery Style.

    Lol, re: the boot. It’s a monster, isn’t it! You are pretty amazing for being able to do Crossfit at all. I was so knackered from hauling myself around of crutches that by the end of the day, I was first to go to bed!
