    Sounds like you are doing your work, and I never thought I'd be where I am when I opted for THR.....never...
    Yes everyone heals in different time frames, just like not every otc product or medical script works the same on each of us....I think the docs already know this from experience and some do admit it....some dont....

    Goodbye March, hello April....with your weather of rain and sunshine both together....

    Ankle update: I've advanced to the awkward Walker then to the walking Cane in the last month.....I still have weakness, achiness and pain when mobile....physical therapy has been extended to end of May for now....thats Always painful but so knowledgeable and helpful in this progression....my grown kids and grandkids are more excited about my progress than I am

    This has been such a journey for you Pops, yet you always seem upbeat which I so admire. I'm happy you've made such progress. I know you want more and right away, but you'll get there. Keep up the PT.

    Good for you!! I know about PT and OT therapy. There were times I hated my therapists and told them so. The pain was that bad. They would just be nice and say they understood ! Others can see your progress faster than you can as that was my situation also. The day I took that first step with my cane was a glorious day. Everybody in the gym clapped for me and I made progress everyday from there. I hated those baby steps when I was used to running everyday! You have to start somewhere and you are way ahead!!

    I'm happy to hear you have improved so much, and I hope you continue to get better with the therapy. You did have a seriously bad break, in the worst way, so it's good you've come so far. Hope you keep doing well, hang in there!
