After six weeks, my fractured fibula has healed. This afternoon, I visited the orthopedist to get permission to stop wearing my boot.
Helaine wanted to know if my leg was x-rayed? Nope. The doctor had me roll up my pant leg and began to squeeze!
Does this hurt? How about this? I pushed my foot hard against her hand. Then, she asked me to resist as she pulled it. I am totally pain free.
I brought my left shoe with me. I’m wearing it for the first time in a month and a half!
Where to go from here? This was brought on by my desire to run and get in shape. Running is out, at least for now. Beginning tomorrow I’ll be bike riding.
My doctor said to take it easy. Start with ten minutes. Work my way up from there. Stop if I feel pain. Can do.
I need to get in shape. I want to get in shape. The former is worthless without the latter.
