Yesterday finally came and I was able to ditch my nasty 5 week old cast….It felt good just to be able to see my leg and touch it. The incission and healing is going well which is great, and the Dr. placed me on 50% PWB for 4 weeks. I have a heal lift in both shoes to keep my foot pointing downwards still.
Since I tok the whole day off of work, I turned my PT script in and was able to get a Evaluation done right away. I expected my calf to be smaller than what it was, so needless to say i was pleased with that. The best part of my day was being able to take my first shower since 3/28….It was scary getting in and out but still a lot much better than a spongebath.
Looking forward to ditching these crutches next, hopefully sooner than later….but I’m not going to rush it.
