Dr gave me the go for weight bearing. Said how great the xrays looked.

Divine intervention had the most to do with it I believe. Weight bearing. What a game changer!

I use a cane and I make sure I am going through the entire stride when walking. I want the entire foot to get better not just a small portion. Pain is not an issue and I have been…

"I have a scooter and a shower chair. Both have been an so helpful. I'm hoping to be non weight bearing for 4 weeks. That's what my Dr said. I think he's trying to be optimistic for me. I know it could be longer."
