Congrats on walking without crutches!!!
I think it took me about three weeks or so to let those crutches go. I've been out of the boot for about three weeks now. I've been in PT twice a week for three weeks also. Again, just like you, it's mostly manual therapy, and yes, my ROM sucks too. My PT says it'll take a long time to come back. I'm also walking in a pool, about four times a week, and I have found that it really helps me walk better on land. When I first got out of the boot, my foot was extremely sore for about two weeks. My peroneal muscles were especially sore. I felt like I was walking on bones. Everything hurt. I still get a little sore here and there, but it's gotten a lot better in the past week. The good thing is, the OCD pain is gone. All the pain I feel is from stiffness, soreness, swelling, you know. As Abby suggested, I bought some walking shoes that were a size too big. I put some soft inserts in there and it has really made a difference! I also wrap my foot from my foot to just below my knee (it helps with my swelling). My foot is still swollen, especially after spending a full day on my feet. But once I prop it up and ice the swelling goes down. Yeah, my knee still feels funny and stiff too. Oh, and I walk with a cane only for long distances. My PT says it'll help get rid of my limp sooner than later. I'm so glad we have the hard part behind us!!! Yay!
