Graeme - How you desrcibe your situation is exactly how i would describe my own with regards to the walking. I guess i like wearing the afo as it just makes it easier i guess. By the way i bet your missus wasnt so complimentary on your walking on the way BACK from the pub!!!
I guess i am happy about it to be honest. Like you all i really wanted was when on holiday to be able to walk around afo-less. Incidentally i am flying out to majorca this evening for a weeks sun, sea and sangria
! so i cant wait to put it into practice. Its strange I could literally copy your latest post change the name on the bottom to Andi and post that as a reflection of my feelings/hopes etc. You speak wise words mate.
I never expected to be able to get back to the footy but on the other hand the golf handicap has certainly improved on the back of that!
Ive got a consultation with my local primary care trust (PCT) in a couple of weeks and hopefully they will agree to purchase the SAFO for me, so if its free im gonna give it a shot.
Tanya - it is my right foot, i really dont have a problem driving. I always wear the afo when doing so however.
Right guys im off to pack my shorts and head off for the airport
. Ill speak to you soon.
