    I'm sorry, but I can't help you out...wish I could...I broke my ankle in 3 places. The only issue I have now is with my Talus, the bone across the top of my foot, and daily pain there. My inner ankle stays the size of a small egg, too. Maybe someone else will be able to help you with your question.

    Sincerely,

    Kate

    Had this done on Nov. 9th. It was worth it to me. I had surgery on the right foot and my left foot was swollen because I was putting all my weight on it.

    Not much pain.... just a pain in the butt because recovery is long. Things that helped me ....a wedge where I could elevate my foot. A potty chair next to my bed for the first couple of days. A shower chair and knee scooter. I had someone help me in the morning and in the evening. Otherwise, I was alone. My biggest concern was feeling trapped and having to sit still. Ended up, not being an issue. I had my GP write a script for PT before my surgery. I learned some things I could do to strengthen my core and legs. It also was nice to establish a relationship with my PT person. You will do fine. It is what it is.... a looong process. But, doable.

      Hi: I am walking with the cam boot right now ... full weight bearing. On Monday I see my surgeon and will receive okay to walk without boot. I may have a brace because my work environment is very harsh... all inclines and stairs. Anyway, to answer your question, my physical therapist allowed me to take a couple of steps today. My foot is tight but I did not feel pain. I guess I will learn a lot more on Monday.

      Two other things that helped me once I got into my cam boot was a "lift" for my other shoe. This makes walking in a boot much easier. I got it on Amazon. I think it is called el-lift or El-a-lift. It is a rubber sole that adds height and attaches to sneaker. Also, compression socks helped me too.

      Do you have someone that will help you while you are recovering?
