We had our coffee, then headed to PT. Successful! I am cleared to one-crutch around the house, yes, in The Boot. I have to keep working with the hallux and the front of the foot to increase flexibility, and to overall continue to gain strength; however, staying in The Boot and being more active will also generally help strengthen the foot.
Basically, I’m counting down the next two weeks when I have my next surgeon appointment, to get the most productive and encouraging jump forward in permission-to-do-more.
