Sue,

I am not a PT, but I can share what I did with guidance from my PT. I began by resting the foot on the floor and rubbing it over a tennis ball to get back some normal feeling. I used two crutches, and began by just touching my foot on the ground and then gradually putting more and more weight on my injured leg. Be careful to walk as normally as possible. That is, avoid limping because it will hurt your hip and back.

I hope you are soon dancing with joy.

Eileen
