Fear of falling

Out of cast (outcast!) for a few days now and my trusty Aircast A60 is supporting my leg. I am scared that every step my result in some sort of relapse. I'm sure it won't. Mobility on the flat is not an issue.....I have begun to walk up steps which is such a bonus and carrying a nice cuppa is now easy to do without splashing the contents over the floor, the wall and myself. The big issue I am plagued with is uneven ground. The gravel driveway, the step over the front door, things on the floor. Ouch! Rotation in the foot is improving, however I am not able to flex my foot upwards. Any abnormality in the surface structure renders me with unpleasant sensations and fear. Exercise wise, I embraced Janathon in a practical way yesterday and covered my mile, about half on crutches and half in a stoop-hobble. Very exciting.

  1. Just catching up with your blog - great news that the cast is off. I'm very impressed by the Janathon/Crutchathon resolve. Wishing you a continued and speedy recovery!
