Re: Wahhhh I want to walk!

Tracy, sounds like you are making great progress to me!! Keep up the good work & don't get down on yourself!! I imagine it is going to go like that for me. I cannot walk in that darn boot without the crutches....I think because my leg is too weak to drag it along and I can't flex the foot the way you need to to take a step....haven't been able to get into pt for 2 weeks....I was too sick to go today....curse this nasty cold! Hang in there!

Re: Wahhhh I want to walk!

Tender,,,what a bummer that someone else's issue is keeping you from using the hotel pool. Is there another hotel you could try? I hate that you don't have consistent use of the aquatic PT benefits, since it seems to be more comfortable for you.

Re: Wahhhh I want to walk!

I used the gel cup too. It really helped.
Don't get discouraged y'all. You're at a crucial point. Do your home PT exercises faithfully. The changes you'll see will surprise you, I promise!
