I forgot how to walk after many months in a cast. When I did finally try I had developed an awful sideways gait but, with determination and constant attention to how I was moving, I got back to normal walking in about a year. Now I can walk any distance, any pace and am back riding as well. The rehab after a BL is often protracted and quite uncomfortable but keep at it!
