The in home physical therapist appointment yesterday went great. I wanted to ask her about using the cane for short walks around the house. As soon as she walked through the door the first thing she asked was if I had a cane. We grabbed the cane and she wanted to see how well I could walk with it. I walked across the living room and she said "Lets go outside for a walk." Off we went for about a 3-400 yard walk. I must say, that felt great. She has me working on picking my foot up and placing it on the steps so I can strengthen my muscles so I can start walking up steps normal verses one step at a time.
Today will be my first day without Percocet so hopefully that all goes well so I can slowly get off the Tramadol after that. I am feeling good with minimal pain. I went for a walk this morning to and from my office with no issues whatsoever.
I am just amazed at how well the progress has gone thus far. Medical technology has come a long way and it is hard to believe that in 12 days I am walking with just a cane.
