Week 7 - Bye Bye Boot

At 6 weeks post OP the doc said I was healed enough to ditch the boot and start walking with my normal shoes and one heal lift and start PT.
So far I have been pleasantly surprised with this injury and recovery. From the beginning after reading everyone’s horror stories I was expecting 5 months before I could walk again. I can walk pretty good right now with only a slight limp that’s getting better every day.
Good luck everyone…I’m outa here!

    Congrats!! Don’t forget tho, it has been kept confined and isn’t used to your full level of effort.

    I’m feeling good to be out of the boot, but i doubt it can support my 165lb of body weight, and additional to that the 2x, 3x my body weight under normal activities i normally put it through.

    Great to hear positive outcomes like this, I am just 17 days in.

    Good luck. The ability to walk again is such a huge victory in this recovery.

    Congrats on walking boot free! How has it been going since? Were you advised to use any particular shoes?
