Doc gave me the all clear to ditch the boot and go fwb. So I tried to stand up barefooted. It was uncomfortable with the pins and needles but what was more uncomfortable was my knee. My injured leg feels ever so slightly shorter than the other so when I stood up my knee started to hurt. I have to put the injured ankle out in front in order to even stand up straight. Doc wants to see my progress over the next month before prescribing PT. I do stretching exercises, circles, toe lifts, heel lifts, and the alphabet with my big toe multiple times a day. Is this normal to feel like you have an alien leg and foot? Is it normal to feel like the injured leg is shorter than the other? My energy level isnt the greatest after 2 months but i set my alarm to get up every 30 mins to an hour to"walk". Other than that I have my leg elevated. Also I put on my regular walking shoes to move around with my walker.
