Well, I had my 2 week post op appointment today and they were pleased with the incision healing and the reduction in swelling. I'm glad I have been reading all your progress reports as it gave me a better idea of what to expect. Had I not known what you all have been going through I would have expected a freer regiment.
I was told 4 more weeks of the brace with it locked straight. I am to remain on crutches and can start physical therapy next week. I got to lose the granny socks which was one of my big complaints.
A long way to go, but I am grateful for the fact that I can start PT. They said I was free to drive if I can get the foot in the car. I will attempt that trick this weekend, but to be honest, I have had no desire to leave the house for the past two weeks.
Thanks to everyone for documenting your progress. It is a big help.
