I am at 8 weeks and FWB in a non hinged boot. My doc doesn’t want me to wean off the boot until 30th July and my physio is following what he says. I have been taking some steps around without the boot on, not much, just a little and I intend to continue to do a little…
Can I ask if people when weaning off the boot walked barefoot a bit at first ( I am literally taking a few steps around my house) or did they put shoes on for those first steps. Trainers or something? Also, how did the tendon feel when taking those first steps. Mine does feel quite tight and there is a constant pull when taking the steps. Is this what others have experienced. I am now trying to walk from my heel to my toes but not putting much weight on the ball of my foot.I am non op. Thanks.
