This weekend I am doing everything I can to stay off my feet. The goal is to avoid crutches. I want to start PT in January instead of waiting another month, and I have to be pain-free in order to do that. If I’m not convinced I’m getting better by Monday I’m going to get the crutches.
I started this yesterday and I’ve been pretty successful so far. The only thing I’ve really done on my feet is shower, and I’m not going to skip that. Doug went grocery shopping for me because that’s the biggest on my feet thing I do. I’m trying to avoid cooking too.
I have just over two weeks until I go back to the doctor. Regardless of whether I decide to get the crutches or not, I don’t know how long I need to stay off my feet to really consider myself pain-free. The times I’ve been pain-free it has lasted a week and a half. So if it lasts a week and a half this time, is it done or not yet? That worries me. How long til it sticks?
