Weight as tolerated starts today!

Today I start my weight as tolerated today! I am walking in the boot with crutches. I did notice one crutch is actually easier than two. I was using a knee scooter everywhere, which was really nice, but I’m so excited to be on the next step. No pain in my Achilles. My incision hurts a bit– I’m sure that’s normal because its being stretched more than normal. I have been trying to keep up with the surgery massage. I do that at least 2 times a day. I also have been doing minimal foot exercises.

I have an appointment on the 30th with my surgeon and then I don’t start physical therapy until the end of January. Looking forward to see my progress the next couple weeks. Any advise or words of wisdom for someone who is at this point in the recovery process?

Thanks!
