Week 7, boot comes off tomorrow!

First of all, I went to my doctor 2 weeks ago and I told him that I felt I was ready for pt. Since I had this surgery before ( on my right leg) I felt I had an idea of how much my ankle could tolerate. Originally the doctor wanted me in the boot for 7 weeks after surgery which I felt was too long. When I had surgery on my other achilles, I was out of the boot in 3 weeks. So he let me go to pt after 5 weeks. I have been doing very well, actually I have been able to walk with out the boot (pwb). I still have a limp but I know this is normal 7 weeks post op. I am just so glad that I will be getting out of the boot. After surgery it seemed like like was crawling,but it gave me time to count my blessings and to also realize that I need to seek god first! Also what is somewhat strange is the different recovery schedules doctors have after surgery, some want you out of the boot soon, others do not - go figure :)

  1. Congrats! Are you able to walk without a limp in the boot? I am at 5 weeks now, PWB in the boot, and am hoping to ditch the crutches sometime next week. Do you think that is reasonable?

    Thanks!
