It is the left foot so that makes the driving easier.

I hope that your xrays go well.

Thanks again.
glad to hear you are considering calling Dr. Leavitt. Google him and you will see his website. He is probably the best foot specialist in Boston. I can't imagine not having the knee walker. I use the crutches to get in and out of the car. The knee walker goes with me in the car and takes me everywhere faster than I could walking.
