In one week (hopefully), I'll graduate to a walking boot. However, I'm trying not to get depressed knowing that my ankle will never be the same. I've put out so much money for a dog walker thru Wag, but I had to cause my sweet Pomeranian Oliver, was getting depressed too. Here he was going for a walk an hour each day, down to 3, 1/2 hour walks a week. Then there is the cost of having a cleaning crew to come in. Although I have to be thankful for my new friend and neighbor, Chris, who has done so much for me, despite the concussion she's still recuperating from.
So after I get my boot, will I be able to get around using my walker? How about getting down and up one flight of stairs. I know I'll be able to drive my car because I broke my left ankle not my right, and I have my handicap sticker to park more conveniently. I know the swelling is completely gone cause my cast is loose, but even at 5 weeks after surgery, despite all the rest I impose on myself, it'll still tingle if I use it too much. Can anyone share with me what to expect when I get my walking boot?
