I had my appointment with a 4th consultant today and guess what - a different story yet again! Oh well, this time I have finally said goodbye to the casts
I am now the proud owner of an aircast boot with two wedges in the heel and, joy of joys, I am now full weight bearing. I can walk with some difficulty using one crutch although that will get better with practice but more importantly I can now carry somethng while I move. That’s a huge improvement. Not only that but I can finally stop bumping up the stairs on my backside and walk up them whilst holding the rail firmly. Result!
The plan is to wear this boot with 2 wedges for a week, 1 wedge the following week then a further week or two with none… then start to wean off of the boot completely.
I’m feeling very positive today
A question for the experts out there - While I’m waiting to hear from the Physiotherapist… are there any exercises I should be doing now?
