I got my cast off and stitches out one week after surgery. My xrays show that the bone is securely in place with a plate and screws. I started physical therapy 2 days later. I am doing home exercises 3x a day, with heat, ice and massage for my soreness as well.
I am typing with both hands, although it is slooow going. I got about 3 inches cut off the length of my hair to make it a little easier to manage. I drove my car for the first time in 2 weeks. I am returning to work 4/2.
I walked a virtual 5K today. I have been walking about a mile a day since the surgery. Getting outside and staying active feels good. I am taking it slow and easy.
I asked my doctor and physical therapist about walking the OC Half Marathon on 5/5, both said maybe but weren't too enthusiastic. I will just keep walking and see what happens.
