Today is the first day of week 6 and I believe things to be going ok. I have now taken another wedge out and have 1 final blue raiser giving me a slight angle for the foot. I also decided today is the day to go without the crutches. I have brought them into work with me but they are hidden in the corner. Have to say the first 6 weeks have felt like about 3 months, I cant remember what it was like to walk freely and forgot the emotions of walking out of the gym after a really good session
Not back to the hospital for another 2 weeks now so just planning to try and continue to push myself a little walking a bit further each day and we will see how it goes. Have to say am feeling a little daunted about not using the crutches, walking feels a little unnatural at the moment as I constantly feel I’m about to fall flat on my face but I need to move on
In just over 2 weeks I am flying off to Budapest for a stag weekend, the doctor has already said that although I should lose the boot at week 8 he thinks it would be wise for me to wear it while I’m there. Might make some of the activities planned a little harder but airing on the side of safety feel is probably the right decision. I have already contacted the airline in preparation and they are saying that I is no issues with me wearing the boot or taking the crutches on the plane but will let you know how it goes.
Have a good day all and hope your recoveries are going well
