Stitches out and boot off!

Yesterday, 15 days after the procedure, my stitches came out. It was the most painful part of the procedure! I acted as if I were 4 years old. What can I say, I hate pain!!

The only dressing is a large Band-Aid. I still can't shower - have to wait another 4 days until the holes the stitches were in heal. But then, finally, a nice hot shower.

I can walk without the boot in a regular running shoe. When it starts to hurt I should rest. That's it. Because my plantar fasciitis is so bad, I am wearing an AirCast AirHeel ankle brace to cushion my arch until it heals.

My ankle hurts a little, kind of like a mild sprain (with which I am extremely familiar).
