Dec 29 2014 – physical therapy – no boots

I achieved another milestone! I no longer have to wear my boots! It was very difficult to get around with the boots and felt my leg being weighted down. I can now go about without the boots but will use a small heel pad similar to these Dr. Scholl pads. The ones I got was from Dr. J. who had them in his office. It helps with my calf as they were not strong enough to help me push off from my daily travels. It’s so good to be back in my own shoes! I still had issues with fatigue when wearing dress shoes which had less support. If I wore jogging shoes or basketball shoes with the heel pad, I was fine. However, I still could not stand or walk at long distance. I had to be mindful that I had to find a place to sit once I start feeling pain.
