Hi everyone! I guess a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks. I am currently 6.5 weeks post op. I’ve had 4 PT sessions and am weight bearing as tolerated. The surgeon wants me to wear shoes in “controlled environments” and practice my walk using crutches if necessary. I am supposed to use the boot when I leave the house though. I guess the order of things surprised me (shoes before boot w/o crutches) . I think when I see the surgeon on Monday I’ll ditch the crutches???
I really miss teaching and hope I’ll be cleared for work soon. That has been the hardest part, being alone during the day for the past 8 weeks. Way too much time to think. Even when I had a good day I’d cycle through to some negative thinking. But it is getting much better and I know i’ll hit some good milestones over the next month. I’m heading to Sedona, AZ with my family. Although I can’t do the hiking and biking I originally planned I am grateful I will be able to walk, swim, and socialize.
I hope everyone else is doing well and making good progress.
