Week 6 - 9 has been quite interesting. Both heel wedges were out of the boot in just under two weeks (though they should have been in the boot for 4weeks).
Started wearing my running shoes indoor at roughly week 7. Been able to do everything i was told not to do without a bother and my exercise for wk 6-8 was staionery bike and xtrainer for 15mins each, forwards and backwards walking (making sure to roll the foot), body weight squat, leg curl and leg extension weight exercise.
Week 8 onwards, added weight to my squats, increased leg curl and leg extension weights and went for a 1mile walk outside.
All in all, i have being able to do these exercise withought any pain as i am making sure i don't overexert myself and using lower weights to ease myself into things.
I was suppose to be wearing the boot for 4 weeks but only used it for just over two weeks and have been wearing my running shoes at home and outside. Can see a improvement in the walk and limp is pretty non-existent in short slow pace stride. You can see the limp in slight longer stride and once i put some pressure on the leg and start walking faster.
