After 4 weeks wrapped into a Aircast and stuck with only swimming and indoor biking due to my stress fracture, I was finally given authorization to kick off the boot today! No more crutches or walker either!
I would bounce and dance in joy if I could... LOL
According to Doc the checkup X-ray showed great progress and he thinks that my foot has healed strong enough to handle my weight and walking around - leisurely has he specified... LOL
I was given a "lovely" ankle brace that I am going to have to wear for three weeks and with sneakers - no open shoes.
Isn't it pretty or what?!!
A new addition to my collection of casts and boots [$$$] - My Podiatrist is going to have a very nice Christmas celebration on my account this year...
I will also have to wear the brace for biking but I really don't mind as long as I can ride my bike outdoors again and before it gets too cold.
I was worried about rehab because my foot has suffered with some atrophia during the past 4 weeks - more than I would have imagined - but Doc said that it wouldn't be needed, that muscles should re-strenghen by themselves.
Still NO RUNNING - and so for six more weeks - but I am thrilled that I CAN SWIM, I CAN ROAD BIKE and I CAN WALK again!
