Wow, lose the boot on the same day! What terrific news. I have the hinged brace, and my OS said I can lose it shortly after Thankgiving and wear real shoes.
PT will help with the stairs, Annette. I get a little better each day with the down-the-step exercise, but it really hurts because the muscles are in sorry shape. Never thought of a pedometer. Great idea. Where did you get it?
Diane, I hope that infection clears up quickly. Are you on antibiotics? I agree that the boot can be very irritating and think that's why it was so painful plus caused horrible skin rashes.
Boot free!!! You'll be walking soon. Best - Diana
