Apologies for delay in replying. I was told by my OS to ditch the boot even though his underling had previously told me to wear it for longer!! OS first comment when I went through the door was "What are you still wearing that thing for?!!"
Always check with the organ grinder not the monkey!
Yes walking in that great boot is very awkward. Yet, interestingly, I felt very vulnerable when I first tottered without it. I used a stick for some months after losing the boot and only really jettisoned it about 5 months ago and I broke my leg in Jan 2015!
Go at the pace you feel comfortable with and always ask your consultant before embarking on a different regime. Good luck!
