 Keeping fit on a fractured foot
huis (183.90.36.---)   8:06am Mar 8 2017

Hi all! Haven't posted for awhile. It's been slightly more than three months since my fracture and life is still not completely back to normal. Still not allowed to walk without my boot (though at least I'm finally off crutches - FWB with boot).

While I'm back to work, I'm getting frustrated at my lack of mobility as compared to last time. Also I used to be rather active and I'm very worried about my current inactivity - I've definitely put on weight :( my exercise options are limited - in fact I tried swimming last week but it flopped cos my foot hurt when I kicked. Sigh... Does anyone know of/would be able to recommend any exercises I can do to keep fit, given that I'm now walking short distances in my boot? I'm hoping for something more cardio and less strengthening/weights, if that's even possible...

Thank you!

30 nov'16: 5th metatarsal mid-shaft spiral FX
