I’m now at the end of my second week on crutches and, while I’m generally a positive person, I confess that I do not like them. Even with sponges taped to the handles and wearing padded cycling gloves they still hurt my hands.
I have had a few crutch free excursions this week, nothing huge just slowly from car to cinema and car to supermarket and I can walk a short distance but it really isn’t far before my calf starts aching, although no excruciating pain so that’s good. My garmin reliably informs me I’ve averaged 2,000 steps a day which is double my daily average for the previous week.
Apologies for being on a downer but I am truly fed up of sitting and being inactive. This weekend has been beautiful and all I can do is view it through the window. This just isn’t me.
I’m hopefully awaiting my physio appointment on Thursday as right now I’m nervous of doing anything that might be detrimental to recovery. Being advised what I can and can’t do will give me confidence and knowing what I should be doing to aid recovery will make me feel a lot more positive.
Until then friends xx
