I'm not sure if I ever got back to you after your last message. To answer your question regarding my job, yes it does allow me to sit all day. I'm a lawyer, so most days I am chained to my desk. …"
As long as you put your boot on and use your crutches you can get to the bathroom. For showering, I had a shower sock and a shower chair and needed help getting in, but I showered daily. It's a pain being on crutches (carrying food…"
"That's pretty amazing after only one week. I had my left foot done on 12/23. I went back to work yesterday and began partial weight bearing and ended up staying home today, because I overdid it and was in a lot of pain. I get my stitches out…"
Sorry I haven't written in a while. Donna, I wish you the best with your recovery. My mom has a ruptured tendon...not sure if she's going to have the surgery. I know she's in a lot of pain, so I hope your surgery went well and…"
How's your recovery going? I'm happy to report that I'm at 8 weeks and doing so much better. I wore heels to court appearances last week and was fine. At this point, I only have noticeable pain on therapy days (and the…"
"Wow T.D.! I hope she let's me get back to my regular spinning routine next Friday. Luckily, I haven't gained any weight, but I hate not working out. I feel gross. I can't believe you were already cycling 2 weeks after surgery. I was…"
"Thanks, Linda and David. Linda, it's comforting to hear that the pain doesn't necessarily go away within 4-6 weeks. Since my last post, my pain has increased a bit, but I've also been on my feet more and returning to…"
"I'm past the 4 week mark, have been off crutches since the 19th and only have to wear the boot outside as of the 28th (slippers or sneakers in the house are now permitted). The doctor also said I can do some light spinning (5-10 minutes, no…"
The visit with my doctor went well. She was happy to hear I've reduced my pain medication intake to evenings only (as that's when my pain is the worst). As I had hoped, she said I can stop using the crutches, but still wants me to…"
"Thanks, Linda. I'm hopeful I will make a full recovery. I'm curious to see how it feels once I start fully walking on it again. I think I'll be starting PT in a week or two. I'm eager to get this behind me, so I can get back to…"
"Thank you, both, for the responses. I've been taking it easier...actually napping midday, which is something I never do. I've been diligently trying to let my body heal. The doctor started me on partial weight bearing on the 14th, with the…"
I had the surgery almost 2 weeks ago (2/28). I'm still on crutches. I get my stitches out tomorrow and will find out if I can start walking again. My foot still looks pretty bruised...just as much as last week. My pain has been worse…"
