First post-op appointment

Today was my first post-op appointment, at 3 weeks and 3 days!
Though this boot is HEAVY and uncomfortable, I am so happy to be out of the cast.  Every little step counts, and I’ve been so encouraged and inspired by reading many others’ stories on Achillesblog.com.  I’m trying to stay positive!

Anyhow, my surgeon is putting me in the hands of the physical therapist for my protocol.  He’s extremely confident in the procedure, but doesn’t want to move forward too fast too soon.  So for now, I have four wedges (due to my high arch) and am still NWB.  But the plan is to get me started in PT as early as next week, and I see my surgeon again in four weeks.
