I’m walking on my own two feet again (sort of) and so glad to be rid of the crutches. Yesterday I didn’t use them for most of the day, and limped without putting my full weight on my left leg. Today I saw the doctor again and now I can put full weight on my leg, but I need to remain in the boot for about two more weeks.
I saw the doctor again today and I am now down to using one crutch. I can start putting weight on my left leg. Starting today I can put weight on as I can tolerate it, up to my full weight on it in 2 weeks. Full weight also means getting rid of the other crutch! I like being down to one crutch because now I have one hand free for carrying things. This is already so much better than two crutches! Also starting physical therapy this week. Will give more updates as that progresses. I am still amazed that I really have had no pain from this at all since the surgery. It is uncomfortable, and the back of my leg/heal is really tight, but no pain.
