To day I had my first Podiatrist visit since my surgery. After being prodded and probed a bit, all seems to be going well. The doctor told Veronica to make sure that I bring my walking boot to this office visit. I thought and hoped that maybe I would be allowed to started walking with the boot on. Way in the back of my mind, I knew not to get too excited about this possibility because I was only 1 week out from the date of the surgery but this hopping around on one foot using a walker was already getting old. Unfortunately my doctor only wanted to make sure I knew how to put the boot on and wear it while I was hopping around on the other foot...just a little extra protection for the injured foot. He told me that I would not be able to put any weight on the foot for 2 more weeks and another appointment was made for that date. So now my goal date for walking again is on the 16th of this month. After that, I will be having some Physical Therapy and then I can hopefully put this behind me, with the outcome of being able to walk pain free again.
