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.

That’s the new thing, along with single leg heel raises and a new colour of Thera-Band – black is the new light blue

Yes it was physio time again this morning, and all’s good. My physio seems happy, still no pain and a few new exercises to do. I tried my best to see if I could get out of the cast in two weeks time, but alas no, looks like I’m in for 3 to 4 more weeks, not great news but I’ve been in it so long now another couple of weeks won’t matter.

I can now go full weight bearing in my cast, which is good, although it’s not the most flexible so long distance might still need a crutch. Most of the time the spare hand will be…erm… handy.

Back again in a couple of week, and I have to bring both trainers, so that should be progress, I have a wedding to go to on the 12th July so I’m aiming to get into shoes for a least a few hours by then.

Once I’m into shoes I can start going to the gym in the hospital twice a week for six weeks to get the leg fully back in the game.
