Starting to walk again

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

I started to walk again on Monday, using crutches. I was surprised at how unresponsive my leg and foot muscles were to placing weight on them. Anyway, I worked diligently at placing as much weight as possible on the foot and using the leg. I go back to work in a week and a half and I need to be able to walk! The pain in the foot seems to radiate all the way up to my head giving me a nasty headache. Unfortunately, I have had to take the Percocet and Tylenol to help offset the pain. The good news is that I feel like I'm regaining my freedom even if it temporarily makes me feel poorly.

    Not sure what your injury consisted of but I broke my ankle seven months back and I just began walking unassisted 6 weeks back. I was unable to drive until recently and thus was home bound until evenings or weekends. I don't return to work until April 1, 2013
    I will still walk with determination and great effort I am so thankful to be back among adults and to be Free! You too are Free celebrate the day by going someplace you have missed emoticon
