After my physio visit yesterday I was told that I could loose the crutches… so after nearly 8 months I walked about with both hands free. It wasn’t as odd as I thought it would be, but it was ‘handy’ see what I did there. I’ll get my coat.

I did walk out today and grab some lunch and eat it walking back, just because I could. Yea so my foot is still stiff and walking up hill is slow going, but it’s amazing how quickly things start coming back.

Progress it would seem has arrived. I’ve still got a bit to do I know, and with a check up with the Doc and two physio appointments next week it will be busy. Then I’m away to get married for a month and when I get back it will be back to physio.

Today was a physio day… not only did my physio do some tissue massage where I think she was trying to kill me, she put me on one crutch! It’s been a long time coming, and it’s slow going now it’s here, but it’s great to have a free hand. I’ve been walking round work and in the flat with out crutches, but I’m a good boy and they’ve been ever present outdoors. It’s only took me 7 months and 1 day to get ride of one of them.

It would seem now that I won’t get hydro therapy as there is a big back log, and I’m walking well without it, so I don’t need it. I’m now back for three more physio secessions in the next two weeks before I go off to get married for a month. Then when I get back to it. I’m sure in the ideal world I won’t have a month off, but apart from stretching my leg and tendon, using it seems to get the most done.

In the week since my last physio secession it’s amazing how far I’ve come, things are getting looser and at times I can walk with only a very small limp. There’s still loads to do… but I might just be getting somewhere… on one crutch.

Once again Kat at the Royal Free in Hampstead is top notch, great physio who fills you with confidence.

In other news I also drove my car for the first time in about 8 months. Nothing went snap. Bonus.
