Yesterday I went in for my 12 week post op appointment.  Initially the doc told me to bring a shoe and I would be walking away without my boot.  Yesterday the doc said to begin transitioning from my boot to my shoe over the next 3-4 weeks.  Work with physio on strengthening. No strenuous activities for 6-9 months, and then he released me, and said I only need to come back if there is a problem.
I feel like was thrown out into the ocean with little support.  I’m sure my physio will be very supportive, but I still feel that I should be checking back in with the doc to make sure everything is okay, or am I being over cautious?
Please let me know what some of your thoughts are. THANKS

New Shoes:)

In one week I will be going back for my 12 week post op appointment.  I was told to go in with a “good shoe” to wear out.  Whereas I have been wearing only one shoe for 12 weeks, my old shoe is worn down and I am looking to get new ones before I go in.  Does anyone have any suggestions as far as  good shoes??  Would I be okay with just a regular pair of tennis shoes?


Thank you for all of the great ideas.  As far as the pool goes I am hoping that sometime soon our local pool will open.  Living in a small town, we do not have access to a year round pool, and our local pool has had some drainage issues.
