Valerie : OS Visit 9.5 Weeks
Diary entry posted Fri 12:32pm 14 March 2003

Finally saw the doctor yesterday. It has been three weeks, and she asked me if I was putting weight on the foot, which I was. She had x-rays taken, then asked me if I could walk without the crutches. She never told me to try, and I would have been afraid to on my own, so I said I don't know. Give them to me and try she instructed. So I did, and walked (more like lurched) across the office. She asked me if there was a lot of pain, which there wasn't so she said I AM GOING TO GET YOU OUT OF THAT CAST!!!!

2.5 weeks early! She now has me wearing an aircast for the next two weeks. Two crutches this week, then one next week, then another apointment, more x-rays, and if everything looks ok no more crutches and PT!!

I went home, took a long bath, scrubbed my nasty leg, and shaved (carefully avoiding the fracture blisters!) Today it is killing me . . . but I am CASTLESS!
