7 1/2 month ck up - out of boot and into Rybo brace!!!

Just came back from my doctors office. Everything looks good from the surgery and the stress fracture is healing well. Even though it takes 6 to 8 weeks for the stress fracture to heal, thinks look really good and I can lose the boot - again! I have to wear my custom made Rybo brace but it is better then the cast. Now I am back to the usual aches from surgery. I can not believe how happy I am.

Good luck. What is a Rybo brace?

Re: 7 1/2 month ck up - out of boot and into Rybo brace!!!

I am not really sure how to describe. I had ptt surgery in August and went back to work in January. My foot just wasn't ready for the demands of my job and the aso wasn't helping much. It is along the lines of the Arizona brace but better and more comfortable. Includes the ankle. The bottom and heal of it is hard and it laces up. I have to get use to it and had to get 1/2 size bigger shoe for it to fit (now up to 1 size bigger then pre-surgery). It is all good though. How have you been doing? Things getting better?
