Hi all. Just wanted to add another positive report to the board. I had my cast removed and stitches out on Tuesday (18 days after surgery). I have very little swelling and minor bruising remains. I had started walking in my cast last Friday without crutches. Because of this, my doc decided not to give me a cam walker. I started out again on my crutches but by days end I was on one crutch and on Wednesday, went without them totally after having my first physical therapy visit. I will have therapy for two weeks and then go back to the doc to see what he says. The therapist says I have good range of motion. I received stimulation & ice, light massage, and stretching. So ~~~~ so far so good.
