That's great but I strongly recommend the PT. at least for a little while to learn the exercises and stretches.

Quick update

February 21 I got a new cast in which they set the ankle as close to 90 degrees as they could get it. Another 30 days of forced captivity *sigh*, then out of this cast March 25 and onto walking. I have no idea whether I will be in a boot or splint or nothing.

So I am trying to be patient and am still obediently ZERO weight bearing.

Next update in a month!!! Oh, next WDW trip April 30!!

Update 3/27

3/25 after 11 LONG weeks I got out of the cast (one week early!)

I am in a walking boot and was off crutches in one day.

I go back to the Dr. in 3 weeks. Until then I can clomp about indoors in the boot as much as I like. If I am not up and about I do not have to wear the boot, but it is a pain to take on and off. Several times a day I come out of the boot for ROM exercises.

While indoors I can put on running shoes and stand/walk for very short periods (start w/ 5 min per day) MUST use BOTH crutches.

So far no pain and not much soreness but golly geez is that ankle tight--as was to be expected--and still very pronounced swelling in foot and ankle.

Thanks for all of the support and input--my next WDW trip is April 30th-May 6th.
