Walking boot


Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I've spent lots of time on the computer this past month and know that some people hate the walking boot, but I think it's fabulous!!! I felt a little sick to my stomach when they started cutting off the cast, but when I saw my leg in pretty good shape I felt a lot better!!! It's so wonderful to not have to hop around everywhere and to have the leg feel good. The doc said to use the foot to get the swelling down. He could tell that I was a wimp and hadn't used it much.

Today already I've done my exercises, walked around and had a SHOWER with my whole body behind the curtain. So thankful!!!

    That is such great news. I know about the sawing off the plaster, I almost passed out expecting to see blood everywhere. It was DH leg not mine and he was lying down, I stood there in a panic.

I am so glad you are emancipated.
Free to take a nice shower or tub.
Free to exercise and it will get better daily.
Thanks for the comments on my page, I really have appreciated them especially since i am the caregiver and there are just the 2 of us so I keep feeling captive, especially when the ice is around.
I am Happy to hear your good news. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
