Finally Back On Feet

11 weeks after plantar fibromatosis removal and a tailors bunion removal I can walk! Riding a bike will not happen for awhile. Sore with a slight limp but walking and freedom! It will swell up and I just take some time off the foot then back on my feet. I feel liberated I will never take for granted be able to walk again that is for sure!

Good news ! I can only imagine, I was only off the BIKE for 6 weeks and it was torture, not walking would be Hell.

That is terrific news! I was 6 days non weight bearing for a chipped bone in my ankle many years ago. I thought that was torture. 11 weeks? I would have needed sedation to keep from losing my mind.

Congrats on your recovery!

I recently sustained an avulsion fracture of the distal fibula of my left ankle.

I will be off the bike for a while.

The weather here (except for the Woolsey and Hill fires) has been fantastic.

Oh well...

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Now time the burn off 15 pounds of weight gain I hope everybody’s injuries or repairs heal up fast so you all can get back to riding.
