Valerie : OS Visit - 11.5 weeks
Diary entry posted Fri 11:27am 28 March 2003

Finally, my OS is prescribing some PT. I can walk without the crutches (extreme pain), with one crutch (moderate pain), or with both crutches (a little pain). The pain is not at the break site - just the scar tissue, adhesions, etc in the ankle joint. She wants me to keep wearing the brace and go to PT twice a week for the next 3 weeks, then see her again. From everything I have read here, PT sounds like the answer to my problems. I have to admit that yesterday in the OS office was the first time I actually took a few steps without the crutches - it hurt, but I was amazed that the leg held! Now I have been showing everyone my new trick - 3 or 4 steps crutchless. For some reason it does not seem as amazing to my friends and coworkers as it does to me!
