I cant tell the joy I am feeling at the moment. I feel my life is slowly returning.
Visit to surgeon yesterday seemed really positive. Leg muscles are completely wasted of course but I can now not wear the aircast during the day when I am inside. He would prefer me to still wear it outside and when going up and down steps just in case I fall over.
Had a long talk about the other joints in my ankle and what will happen when and if they have to be fused. Not as worried as I was.
I can also return to pilates and yoga with the understanding that there will be things I cant do anymore. I can return to the gym and do weights, cross-trainer (which surprised me), cycle (not spin) and weights. No treadmill.
Swimming is back on the agenda but I think it will be at home for the rest of summer as fatigue does set in quickly.
Physio restarts tonight with a new physio.
Walking Lucy can start but ease into it slowly with little easy walks.
Since the beginning of the year I have lost nearly 5 kilos just by watching what I eat as there has been no exercise involved. I would have like to have lost more but I am still happy with what I am doing so far. Hopefully with some exercise it will help. Mark reminded me about the fact that muscle does weigh more so I think I will take some measurements as well.
After the surgeon we walked down to the MBT shop. MBT stands for Masai Balance Technology. I bought some cute/ugly sandals after a lesson in how to walk in them. I would have loaded a picture so that you know what I am talking about but this stupid computer at work (and I shouldnt complain about that) wont open the product page up.
Anyway speaking about work I had better get back to it.
