So the benchmarks that the surgeon laid out were
Day 5 - get cast (done)
Week 3 - get walking boot (8/13)
Week 6 - start physical therapy
Week 10 - done and get orthotics
6 to 12 months - swelling of foot ends
He didn’t talk about A timeline for pain or assisting devices. At the end of week 2 though I’m able to get by with 2 Tylenol doses a day and the knee walker.
I’m kind of surprised that the pain has gone away so quickly but no complaints!
Today we had a fun FaceTime with our son and granddaughter. We continue to eat dinners prepared by Hubby and I’m reading a lot. I really want to get outside so can’t wait for the walking boot. In the meantime being able to drink wine is good!
