Re: Calcaneal Fracture--Walking Boot
I am almost 11 months out. I started WB at 12weeks. 12 seems a common time, some people sooner. I fractured the femur on the other said, so I didn't have a leg until week 9.
At week 12 I was using walker, and wheelchair a bit, its just easier. Within 2-3 weeks I was completely out of the wheelchair. Then cane and wheel chair. I was out of the walker by week 16. Maybe using it for long walks, if I went shopping, don't rememeber.
I was doinging most things by 4 months after wreck, but in moderation. I fairly acitve now, but I feel it. There will come a point, when its how bad to you want it. I think it comes naturally as you feel better, you want to do more.
