This morning, I made the decision to go boot-free since my 3 weeks were “technically” done. Yesterday, I started back on the exercises and stretches that my physical therapist had prescribed a month ago. This time around, it actually feels good. My ankle and foot are gradually getting used to being free from the boot. The stiffness is easing up, and the stabilization musculature is coming back. I think that I am on the right track ; I am on the road to recovery…finally.
