Week 4 post op.... The Heel Shoe is fitted!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Had my 4 week post op check up today.  The first 4 weeks I have been non weight bearing on my foot and today The Shoe was fitted (it deserves capital letters to emphasise it's importance) smile

They say the first step is the hardest and there is some truth in that statement!  It was really odd putting my foot onto the ground and then putting my weight on it for the first time in four weeks!  I really wasn't sure it was a good idea but the nurse assured me it would be fine.  I took about four fairly painful steps, not agony, more uncomfortable... and so I enter the next stage of my recovery..... one step at a time smile 

Once home, with my walking frame to assist me I went straight to the downstairs bathroom on my own two feet! The feeling of liberation today is just amazing!  :D
