MikeT Posted August 22, 2012 Share Posted August 22, 2012 29 days post op (7/24) and in a boot for a week now. I take my boot off as much as I can and I'm doing similar ROM exercises that you guys seem to be doing No PT but doing the exercises on my own. Still pretty swollen. Decent side to side and circular motion movement. My foot goes down pretty good, but very tight moving upward and doctor told me to stay within that range for now and don't push it. Glad to see you are beginning your weight bearing. Anything similar on this one? I have to wait to week six to begin weight bearing. I have started to place a small percentage of weight on it however, very small. I did have that burning pulling sensation in the wound but mostly gone now. Not much change in the swelling however. How is your swelling progressing? Looks like I'll be 2 weeks behind you guys on weight bearing. I'm anxious to start that part and be able to get around the house without crutches. I think it is good having all the post here. If it's an indicator of the popularity of this thread look at the amount of views to our thread. It's ranks right up there. I know in the past I would look at injury threads to see if there was something in there that would help me prevent a future injury I had allot of trouble sleeping with the boot the first night and it's getting easier. A few days ago I went on the Bledsoe website to see that they have a smaller boot made for sleeping. So i called my surgeon and they said I can come in Friday and they will fix me up with a sleeping splint. So I'll let you know how that is when I get it. I figure to be in the boot for almost 6 more weeks so it may make a difference. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
