Re: Anybody use a cane? (2 months post-op calcaneal osteotomy/tendon transfer, PTTD)

Thanks for the info Lisa - today I was given the go
ahead for FWB - it felt soooooo good to wear running shoes instead of that boot. Of course I did walk for a little too long so my heel did get very sore but that was self imposed.
I do however want to get some arnica gel tomorrow as it sounds like you found it very helpful. I did take the arnica tablets after surgery and it seemed to speed up healing.
My PT has really increased my exercises so I will be kept busy between doing that and icing my foot.
Thanks again - its always nice to hear someone is progressing well -something to really
really look forward to.
