... What has helped me recover from the pain in my most recent surgery (as I'm really lame in taking care of myself) is RICE: Rest, Ice, Compression, and most important, Elevation.

I think your a step ahead of me though because I wasnt comfortable enough in the shoe to do that much walking at once! (The aircast was fine though). I... (7 replies)
... Thanks for answering my thread, Sharon. I should clarify by saying that I have been walking on a stiff surgical shoe and am bearing the weight on my heel and outer side of my foot. I was also bearing part of the weight on a cane. Nevertheless, I feel, after talking to my doctor this morning, that I did too much and I should be more careful. She said I am supposed to be...

I started wearing sneakers in early December and at the end of December was given... (4 replies)

Pain for me was minimal, I was in an Aircast within two weeks and in mid-January I was allowed to remove the cast and start wearing tennis shoes. I'm getting around pretty well, pain is minimal, and I'm doing my range of... (4 replies)
