saw my surgeon today & was given the go ahead to put as much weight in the boot that I can stand. I start Physio tomorrow. I'm nine weeks after a double ankle fusion & arch reconstruction. I find I can't put any weight in the boot but I can put weight in my bare feet. My foot is as stiff as a board, no give whatsoever. Especially around the ankle by the incision & back of the heel. Well, everywhere really. I hope physio can get my foot to loosen up. How do you walk without bending your ankle since it doesn't bend? Will my heel eventually learn to lift up again when walking? It feels so weird. Like I have a rubber band tied around my ankle. Will that feeling go away? Thanks for answering my questions. You guys in this forum have been wonderful.
