Talking walking without crutches

Yay I have been doing it for 5 days now, I am 9 weeks out. I go without them when I go out in about and when I'm at home, I use them when minor in the boot. I use the boot still I have a month and I'm praying I'm out of it. But I only been to physical therapy 1 time I'm still waiting on insurance to approve me for more sessions.
Surgery on November 9th,2012. I had extra bone removed, bone spur shaved down, calf muscle lengthened and a titanium wedge put in.

Re: walking without crutches

woohoo! that's awesome!
I just got back form the doc... got my first cast off and stitches out. I'm a bit bummed out as I was looking forward into going into a boot, but my ROM won't allow for that yet, and I'm way too swollen to go into another cast! I have sausage toes!!! And it's sooooo tingly. I hadn't really had any problems with swelling until this past friday, then- whoa! So Im back in a splint for the next 2 weeks. I guess it's good- I'll be able to take it off and stretch and bathe!
Glad to hear it's going well for you!
